Academic Support

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology offers various resources for university faculty, students, and independent researchers.  Classes, students, and researchers can visit the Museum's exhibitions on the Brown University campus, request objects from the Collections Research Center in Bristol are brought to the Museum's CultureLab, also on campus, and visit the Collections Research Center itself.

In addition, Brown University faculty, students, and staff are eligible to receive Collections Research Grants.  We offer internship opportunities for students and work closely with the Haffenreffer Museum Student Group.

Check the links in the navigation bar to the left for more information about these and other resources. To request access to the Museum's collections - in CultureLab or at the Collections Research Center - please download and complete the Research Request/Collection Access Form and email it to
