Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology continues its new series “Family 1st Saturdays” Nov. 2 at the museum. Activities are held 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the museum, and this month’s subject is Papua, New Guinea.

 

Museum visitors are invited to try their hand at traditional games and learn about the 50,000-year-old culture of New Guinea. Visitors can create take-home shell jewelry and traditional New Guinea masks while learning about music and cultural traditions.

 

A temporary exhibit of the museum’s Papua, New Guinea, collections will be on display throughout the day.

 

“Anthropologists have long traveled to Papua, New Guinea, to study the diverse cultural groups,” said Elizabeth Sutton, the museum’s deputy director and curator. “Come see the museum’s new collection of objects from this island nation and learn about its amazing 50,000 year history.”

 

USU students and members of the public are invited to the museum any time during open hours Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. The museum is always free. Funding for Saturday events is provided by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Utah Division of Arts and Museums.

 

The USU Museum of Anthropology is on the USU campus in the south turret of the historic Old Main building, Room 252. Free parking is available in the adjacent lot, south of the building. For more information, call museum staff at (435) 797-7545 or visit the museum website.
