Group Tours


Museum Galleries & Exhibitions are Open to all Visitors beginning August 17, 2021.

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 University Museum, will follow The University of Mississippi’s guidelines and require masks be worn by everyone indoors in public spaces.

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 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.

We 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.
