Joy of discovery

Dewey and Irene Large Science Museum GraophiThere’s a new must-see destination for alumni visiting Berry – particularly those with an interest in science – the Dewey and Irene Large Science Museum in McAllister Hall. Located on the first floor of Berry’s 130,000 square-foot science center, the museum features displays on loan from the Tellus Science Museum and items from the existing collections of faculty members and the chemistry and physics departments.

The name honors the memory of Dewey (44c) and Irene (47c) Large, an alumni couple captivated by the possibility of incorporating a museum into McAllister Hall’s original design. Funding was provided by the sale of a gift of land made by the couple before their deaths.
