The Branson Museum of Zoology was dedicated in 1996 in honor of EKU emeritus professor Branley A. Branson. The Branson Museum of Zoology is the largest zoological research collection in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and has major holdings in freshwater fishes, crayfish, gastropods, and unionid bivalves dating back to the 1950’s. The collection is primarily composed of species from within the Commonwealth of Kentucky, but also contains lots from throughout the southeastern United States.
