The JMM has an eclectic ethnographic and archaeological collection that includes everything from Babylonian tablets to Roman lamps, stone tools from local Adena mounds and an authentic Egyptian mummy. The collection consists of over 1,800 pieces and has considerable teaching potential. It houses objects from many different countries including Egypt, Japan and the Americas. The JMM is not actively collecting archaeological or ethnographic materials, but maintains its current collection for educational purposes.
