Learn with the Museums

The Museums at W&L holds exhibitions, permanent galleries, lectures, classes, and events throughout the year. These events, along with the collections, provide ample opportunities to integrate museum learning into academic life.

Washington and Lee students who are interested in learning about and engaging with the museums have several opportunities to work with us, participate in events, and stay connected.

University Faculty
