The Museum of Education is located within the College of Education at the University of South Carolina. It serves as a “public square”—a venue for open discussion and the examination of educational issues. This “pedagogical space” offers an opportunity to creatively complicate how research is disseminated and presented. Opened to the public in 1977, the museum’s programs are oriented toward educators, students of various ages, and the general public. Paramount to all of the museum’s programs, exhibitions, and initiatives are the ideals of social justice, integrity, intellectual spirit, and creativity. When patrons walk through the doors or visit our website, the Museum invites them to engage with important people, events, and ideas, and to consider how this information could make life better for their communities, for their students, and for themselves.
Fall 2023 Exhibit
2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the birth of hip-hop culture. This April, the American Educational Research Association honored this important cultural milestone with the exhibit, “AERA HipHop50.” This exhibition is on loan to the University of South Carolina for the Fall 2023 semester and is part of a university-wide celebration of hip-hop culture’s global impact.
