Lifeways Gallery

Objects from the Museum’s collections are used to illustrate the ethnological themes of Domestic Life, Beliefs, Technology and Art, and Encounters.  This gallery also houses the Gregory H. Perino Archaeological Study Area where regional archaeological materials are available for research and appreciation.  It honors the work of Gregory H. Perino (1914-2005), archaeologist and the Museum’s first director (1975-1984).  An exhibit area showcasing Recent Acquisitions is also located here, displaying newly acquired works on an ongoing basis.  Through 2025, the area recognizes the generous support of Dr. Richard and Nancy Weiss.
