Tour the BCRHM.

Michael Delaware
Join me on a tour of the Battle Creek Regional History Museum as we explore some of the exhibits, and also examine some artifacts that will be on future display with Museum Chairman of the Board Doug Sturdivant. The Battle Creek Regional History Museum (BCRHM) is in the process of renovating phase one of three, in a major expansion project to showcase new exhibits and have larger event spaces for education purposes.

Thanks to Michael for doing this video tour of the museum.

Albion College Video about the BCRHM.

During the spring semester of 2021, students in Dr. Alli Harnish’s Anthropology class (ANTH 325) at Albion College partnered with the Battle Creek Regional History Museum as part of a grant-funded community engaged learning project.

Students spent several weeks learning and practicing key ethnographic and interpretive techniques used in the fields of anthropology and museum studies. They combined these methods with readings and discussions about epistemic (in)justice and participatory design to imagine and then carry out community-engaged anthropological work. Each student interviewed one person associated with the Museum, including visitors, volunteers, board members, and community leaders. Highlights from the interviews were then layered with drone video and archival images to produce this short promotional video.

Many thanks to:Dr. Jessica Kane—Associate Director
