Multiversity Galleries

These galleries house thousands of objects from the Museum’s worldwide research collections. MOA has worked with members of the communities whose relatives and ancestors made the pieces on display. Community members also helped to organize the collections using their own classification systems. The exhibit cases are designed to provide maximum visual access to the objects. Innovative Digital Catalogue Terminals (MOACAT) provide additional collection including images, audio and video at the touch of a screen. Embedded within the Multiversity Galleries is a Presentation Circle featuring a series of short, informative videos.
