Museum of Natural History, University of Oregon


Officially created in 1935-36 as the Oregon State Museum of Anthropology and Museum of Natural History, the museum has its roots in the late 1800s, when geologist Thomas Condon joined the University of Oregon as one of its first three professors and brought his extensive fossil collection to the UO. Known as the Condon Fossil Collection, the assemblage remains at the heart of the museum's paleontological collections. During the 1930s, archaeologist and founding director Luther Cressman began the museum’s tradition of cutting-edge research.

The museum is a center of interdisciplinary research and education, serving the State of Oregon, the University of Oregon, Native American Tribes, the research community, K-12 students and teachers, and the wider public in Oregon and beyond.
