The Clayton Museum of Ancient History featuring the Stanback collection includes a wide array of artifacts, with the core of the collection, focused around the Roman soldier. This facility offers enhancements for classroom instruction in history and Biblical studies and provides an excellent collection that the college shares with the public. CMAH’s interactive area, the Little Kingdom, gives visitors a hands-on experience on an archaeology dig, living in an ancient Israelite house, or shopping a Roman market. The museum is housed in the lower level of the newly remodeled Phyllis Mackey Center (8th and Delaware).
Hidden gem in York – It is a small, very well laid out and displayed museum. The collection of artifacts is very impressive. The tour is self-guided and takes about an hour. There is a nice hands-on area for children. The exhibits were very interesting and informative, focused on the Near East and Mediterranean empires. This is a real gem of a place. And it’s free! Will definitely be back
