The University of Mississippi

University of Mississippi Museum and Historic Houses


Visitors, scholars, school children and researchers regularly visit the University Museum and our Historic Houses. Some come to walk among our Greek and Roman sculpture dating back to 1500 BCE or to see our telescopes, models of large machines, and demonstration devices that have taught natural philosophy, physics, and astronomy to our students for decades. Others come to hear from leading experts who offer academic connections, artistic experience, and rare insights about our collections. Families bring their children to experience hands-on learning designed to unleash their creativity and broaden their understanding of other cultures. Many come to stroll down Bailey Woods Trail to find their way to Rowan Oak.

The University of Mississippi Museum and Historic Houses complex serves as a cultural center for the University community, the state of Mississippi, and beyond.
