On the campus of Beloit College is this collection of artifacts. It shows how anthropology is collected and what we learn from the items. Amazing items from BCE to "present" times are displayed. On the second floor you have the development of man with murals...More

Interesting little museum. They give the history of the acquisition of the collection, which was very interesting to read about. I loved the textile exhibition and how it was presented. They have some very nice pieces there! I recommend visiting while in Beloit!

The Logan is a treasure for those interested in anthropology and archeology. It is also valuable for those interested in ancient Native American life. It is free, fascinating, and easy to get to. Plan several hours there. I only wish I was closer.

This is a stop truly worth your time if you have an interest in anthropology. The museum is small but the exhibits are rare and educational.

I took my grandkids here when they were visiting for something different to do as we always try and do educational things as well, and they loved it. So many things to see and look at. Was just very cool

The best part about it is the students curate the collections as part of their studies. I made me want to go back to school myself! I especially liked the room which had so much displayed in the round. To be able to see that...More

A good way to spend an hour or two on the Beloit College campus in a unique nineteenth century building exploring items from around the world. The building was originally built as a shrine to veterans of Beloit that lost their lives in the civil...More

Beloit College is the site of many very evident mounds from native peoples of this area. The anthropology museum not only has a large collection from this period, but from many major cultures that only larger museums have. It is the case that three times...More

So, put it in context: this is not an attraction to draw you off the highway. But if you happen to be in Beloit with an hour to kill, it's decent and free. An old church with attached academic building, the museum is set in...More
