“what a collection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The museum is small, but excellent. The collection of objects from Egypt and Peru is amazing. Ever seen a crocodile mummy? The California native American collection is also good, but not displayed as well.

“Intersting collection...worth a visit if seeing UC Berkeley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2005

Phoebe A. Hearst Anthropology Musuem is an interesting museum of Native California Cultures as well as other international cultures. It has a vast collection of 260,000 plus items - they regularly change the display to show only some of the most interesting items from this collection. There is also a good museum art store. If visiting the UC Berkeley Campus, its a nice place to stop by for a visit for half hour or an hour. Its located in Kroeber Hall on campus. The museum does charge a small admission charge.
