MoCOLAB

The KU Mobile Collaboratory, or MoCOLAB, is a repurposed 1972 31’ Airstream Land Yacht that was conceived and designed to be KU’s community classroom on wheels, and acts as the venue for the Traveling University Libraries Exhibits program, the traveling component of the KU Libraries Exhibits program. It makes appearances at events in the Lawrence and Kansas City areas.

The exhibit events hosted by TULE and the MoCOLAB have recently been featured in a Museum Studies master's project,"A Brief History of the Mobile Museum," discussing the history of mobile museums in the United States. Visit KU Scholarworks to see more scholarship generated at the university.
