Semitic Museum

The Semitic Museum houses over 40,000 Near Eastern artifacts, most of which derive from museum-sponsored excavations in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Syria, and Tunisia. The Museum is dedicated to the use of these collections for the investigation and teaching of Near Eastern archaeology, history, and culture. The Semitic Museum sponsors archaeological excavations and surveys of complex societies of the Near East, with special emphasis on those ancient cultures related to the world of the Bible.
