Through the efforts of Eli Lilly and Indiana University, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology was dedicated as an independent research facility with the Indiana University community in 1971. In addition to curating Eli Lilly's archaeological collection and the records and collections from Glenn Black's excavations at the Angel Mounds site, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory also curates over 10,000 collections, made up of millions of individual artifacts, representing over four decades of archaeological research in every county in Indiana and at significant sites throughout the Midwest.
IUMAA is Indiana University’s newest museum and draws upon the strengths, rich collections, and connections to community of the former Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures. These two collections include over 5 million artifacts that span across a broad range of human experiences. The museum is currently closed as we install newly-designed exhibits and learning labs that will enable visitors to learn more about cultural traditions, values, and beliefs of peoples of the world.
Public and handicap parking spots are available at IUMAA, in the lot off the corner of 8th Street and Indiana Avenue, by the museum's lobby doors. More public parking and IU permit parking is available just one block north and west at McCalla School.
The mission of WonderLab is to provide opportunities where people of all ages, especially children, can experience the wonder and excitement of science through hands-on experiences that stimulate curiosity, encourage exploration, facilitate discovery and foster learning.
