Venue Rental



Located at on the corner of 5th & University, between the University of Mississippi campus and the historic Oxford Square, the UM Museum provides an excellent location for an intimate reception, meeting, or meal to celebrate a special occasion.

Surrounded by the Museum’s diverse permanent collection, the event space at the Museum offers an ideal setting for academic and cultural events.

The Museum is an exclusive venue, unique to the area, and provides Museum professionals to answer questions, monitor gallery access, and provide security.



The Speakers Gallery serves as primary venue rental and will feature various temporary exhibits throughout the year. 

The Lobby is also available, to expand your gallery rental, or to serve as an intimate event space.
