Group Tours


Museum Galleries & Exhibitions are Open to University Faculty and Students by Appointment

The University of Mississippi Museum and Historic Houses is committed to the safety of our visitors and staff through these uncertain times. Both sites, Rowan Oak and the museum’s galleries, will remain closed to the general public until further notice.

Take your experience at the Museum to the next level and gain a greater understanding of the diverse collections on display by booking a group tour today! The UM Museum Education staff offers guided tours for visitors of all ages and interests. From pre-school students seeing art for the first time to art majors wanting to enhance their studies to lifelong learners of all ages, we aim to share our collections with many different audiences.

Our Curator of Education will consult with you to create the most enriching tour experience possible. Whether you want a general tour of the whole museum or a specialized focus on one exhibit to correspond with your curriculum, we are happy to work with you to create a memorable and rewarding educational experience. For our younger audiences, you can also book a creative activity related to the exhibits led by our education staff.
