The University of New England manage three museums:

Museum of Antiquities is the only regional ancient history and archaeology museum in NSW. Its world class selection of antiquities is complemented by ethnographic material from Australia, Oceania and the world.

Museum of Education consists of two 1880s school buildings and a post WWII portable building from the Armidale High School. Each schoolhouse is furnished with authentic school furniture, books, teaching aids and photographs.

Zoology Museum is a natural history museum displaying all of the major zoological groups, including several fine sequences of associated folssils. Most of the common Australian animals are on exhibition and the New England region is well represented.

The grounds of the University of New England are a lovely place to wander as you explore the Museums of Antiquities and Zoology. There are wheelchair pathways throughout the campus and plenty of places to enjoy a quiet break in a shaded seating area. Two cafes, the Deli Marche at the Northern Campus and the Booloominbah Collection in the historic 'Booloominbah' homestead, are open from 8.30am to 2.30pm for coffee and lunch.
