Schingoethe Center of Aurora University

Cultivating Creative Community


Check the Hours and Admission page for more information.

Today, the Schingoethe Center depends almost entirely on the generosity of donors to grow its collection.

We accept Native American artifacts as well as artwork by both Native American and non-Native American artists. By donating to the museum you:

  • Support the preservation of Native American cultures
  • Sustain our educational mission
  • Help the museum relay history through the artifacts in our exhibits
  • Ensure that the items will be cared for to benefit present and future generations

If you have questions regarding tours, field trips, or discovery boxes, please visit our Educational Resources page to read a letter from Executive Director Meg Bero.
