Joseph Moore Museum

The Joseph Moore Museum inspires learners of all ages to connect with and appreciate nature, including the ancient world and its peoples, using a scientific lens.

The museum employs Earlham students to learn about museum education through work as tour guides, curators, animal caretakers, and exhibit specialists.

Thousands of school children from Wayne County along with hundreds of families and visitors experience the Joseph Moore Museum collections through tours, planetarium showings, programs, and casual visits, all at no cost, each year.

Scientists from near and far study specimens from the museum's extensive collections of birds, reptiles, insects, mammals, and various anthropological artifacts. The museum encourages the scientific community to utilize its collections for research.
