Godwin-Ternbach Museum, Queens College

The Godwin‐Ternbach Museum, situated on the campus of Queens College of the City University of New York (CUNY,) has a comprehensive permanent collection of 4,000 objects from all cultures, ranging from the ancient world to the present day. Ternbach and Godwin were, themselves, immigrants; their desire to provide a vital center to carry on the history and cultural traditions they brought with them continues, now modeled to the interests of the new communities it serves. Its location within the Queens College campus makes it a perfect demonstration site for replication purposes in other university campuses across the nation.
