Museum of Peoples and Cultures

Art, Culture, Museum, Provo, Utah, BYU, Utah County, Brigham Young UniversityThe MPC is Brigham Young University’s archaeological and anthropological museum. The University now has four museums – the Paleontology museum, the Museum of Art, the Bean Life Science Museum, and the Museum of Peoples and Cultures (MPC).

Allen Hall was built in the late 1930s as a men’s dormitory. During World War II it became women’s housing. In the 1960s the building was adapted for use as a Language Training Mission (a pre-cursor to the MTC). This varied history is evident in the structure of the building. The galleries are located in what used to be the common and dining rooms when the building was student housing. The classroom was the kitchen, and the majority of offices were dorm rooms. The museum has occupied the building since 1981.
