Since 1899, the Maxey Museum has been providing an opportunity for Whitman students to make history come alive. The Maxey Museum oversees a diverse set of exhibits spread out over the Whitman College campus. Located in Maxey Hall and Penrose Library, these exhibits are drawn from the Museum’s 3,500-artifact collection and are designed and created by students under the direction of Exhibitions and Collections Manager Brynne Haug. Admission is free and tours are available upon request. The museum office and main display are located in the auditorium building of Maxey Hall next to the Environmental Studies wing.
