Upcoming Events

Our museum is open to the public. We have a variety of in-person and virtual events and programs available for families and science/natural history enthusiasts.

Have you heard of forensic anthropology from TV or news stories? Do you think you know what it is? Well, you might be surprised!

Join Katie East, a forensic anthropologist in Nebraska, to discover what forensic anthropologists can learn from skeletons and how they do their work. During this virtual Sunday with a Scientist, we’ll work with Katie to learn some forensic anthropological skills. We’ll practice thinking like a scientist and then put our skills to the test to solve a mystery.

This interactive program will involve hands-on activities and lots of audience participation.
Register in advance to participate in this free program over Zoom: ( or watch on the Morrill Hall Facebook Page (@UNSMMorrillHall).
