The Museum is responsible for the preservation, storage and access of artifacts for educational purposes of cultural property. In addition, staff lead the efforts to research and document the collection, design its presentation to the public and use the collection to support teaching of history, science, art, and culture.
Staff members organize exhibitions, demonstrations, lectures, community events, educational workshops, and programs for children. Now & Ever: The Campaign for Ole Miss, with your support, will endow the museum director, curator, and museum staff positions to ensure that the Museum continues to be ranked among the most highly regarded in the nation.
The Campaign, with your support, will also fund a proposed position of Historic Landscape Specialist at Rowan Oak to care for the historically renowned landscape, horticulture, and forest resources of Rowan Oak.
