The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology, Brown's only "university museum," is a treasure trove of fascinating artifacts from the Native peoples of the Americas, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. Located on a beautiful setting along the shores of Mount Hope Bay in Bristol, the museum was donated to Brown University by the family of Rudolf Haffenreffer in 1955. Recognized as one of the leading anthropological teaching museums in the Northeast, the Haffenreffer offers public lectures, performances, symposia, festivals, and a broad range of related programs and events. Admission: $3 for adults; $2 for seniors; $1 for children; free for members. See The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology at Manning Hall for information on the museum's satellite location on the Brown campus, which opened to the public in May 2005.
