The Archeological Museum of Uzhgorod National University was established by the Rector's order on March 9, 2004. It aims at preserving the unique collection of historic and cultural values dated from the Stone Age to the late Middle Ages, which was thoroughly accumulated by the members of the university archeological expedition.
In 2013 the Archaeological Museum was reorganized and moved to the new premises, which holds the exposition and conference hall, the cameral laboratory, and the restoration workshop.
The Archeological Museum assets fall into the fixed museum exhibits that make up the backbone of the museum display and the funds of assistant research materials that contain some attendant information, but prove to be as invaluable as museum articles.
The main Museum activity is tightly connected with the support of academic training, scientific and experimental research, and acquisition of museum collections, as well as exposition, funding and protection of historically important articles. The assistant workers of the Museum carry out the investigation and ascription of Zakarpattian archeological monuments and give some useful recommendations for better preservation. Together with the students of the Historical Department they organize annual archeological expeditions to explore major historic monuments of Zakarpattia.
Within the framework of the international cooperation, the Archaeological Museum has close relationships with museums and research establishments of Slovakia, Hungary and Romania.
