Description

In 1977 Margaret Mead and other anthropologists founded the Anthropology Museum of the People of New York to promote cross-cultural understanding among the city's many cultural groups. There are two exhibitions. One details the four sub-disciplines of anthropology: biology, archaeology, linguistics and culture studies. Another traces the history of the Armenian people, from ancient times to the 1915 Armenian genocide through paths of immigration, including to the United States. The museum offers panel discussions, traveling photography exhibits, demonstrations, field trips, art shows and socials.
