Follow your museum visit with an art activity in the museum classroom, led by our education staff (cost: $1 per student), available for grades K-6 for groups of 30 or less. Activities for grades 7-12 can be customized through consultation with our Curator of Education. Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance. Further activities can be coordinated with the loan of a free Traveling Trunk from the Museum.

The University of Mississippi Museum is located at the corner of University Avenue and 5th Street in Oxford and is open from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday.
