Oriental Institute - Teacher Programs

The Oriental Institute is a research organization and museum devoted to the study of the ancient Middle East and Egypt. Founded in 1919 by James Henry Breasted, the Institute, a division of the University of Chicago, is an internationally recognized pioneer in the study of the archaeology, philology, and history of early Middle Eastern civilizations. The Oriental Institute Museum houses a world-renowned collection of ancient art and artifacts for the benefit of researchers, students, educators, and the general public. The Museum displays objects recovered by Oriental Institute excavations in permanent galleries devoted to ancient Egypt, Nubia, Persia, Mesopotamia, Syria, Anatolia, Palestine, and Israel, as well as special temporary exhibits.
