Innovation Gallery

Housed on the ASU Tempe campus in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change building, the Innovation Gallery is a public space in which students prototype conceptual exhibits and programming, drawing from faculty research. It was previously the ASU Museum of Anthropology.


Educational programs

ASU partners

We collaborate with faculty who are among the top social scientists in the country, whose cutting-edge research provides our exhibit themes. Graduate students in the museum studies program use the museum as their laboratory to interpret, design and develop unique and interactive exhibitions.

We also draw from the vast archaeological, ethnographic, scientific and other collections maintained by the university.

Community partners

Museum studies graduate students complete internships at major museums across the state (e.g., Phoenix Art Museum, the Heard Museum, Museum of Northern Arizona) and nation (e.g., the Smithsonian Institution, Denver Art Museum).
