Fresno City College anthropology students have the opportunity to learn collections management and to participate in the development and production of new exhibits.

The Museum of Anthropology is a teaching museum in the Social Sciences Division of Fresno City College. The Museum opened in 1970s and continues to present exhibits about human culture drawn from both its ethnographic and archaeological collections.

The Museum is dedicated to increasing the knowledge and understanding of human cultures across time and space and to promote respect and appreciation for cultural diversity. Our primary mission is to foster learning through the collection, preservation, and interpretation of material culture.

The Fresno City College Museum of Anthropology and the associated Archaeological Curation Facility house a variety of collections reflecting the material culture of the indigenous peoples of the Central Valley of California, artifacts from Mesoamerica, South America, and Africa. The Archaeological Curation Facility also curates artifacts and records from archaeological projects in the Central Valley and Sierra Foothills.

The Museum's current exhibit focuses on Native American basketry techniques and materials. Highlights include Western Mono baskets and a mural showing the local foothill environment where many basketry materials are found.
