Named in honor of Dr. Ruth Warner Towne, a longtime faculty member and administrator at Truman State University, the 7,600 square foot multi-purpose facility houses the Ruth W. Towne Museum and the University Office of Admissions.
The joint Museum-Admissions combination offers a place for students and parents to become acquainted with Truman State University and its rich heritage. Additionally, the Museum is available to the general public and any visitor to campus to view the exhibits.
Approximately 3,000 square feet is devoted to the Museum that features multi-media and electronic exhibits that are changing, dynamic and interactive. The space serves as an educational resource and learning environment for Truman students and professors, as well as regional school-age children.
