Welcome to the University Museum and Cultural Center
Due to the ongoing threat surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) the University Museum and Cultural Center (UMCC) is currently open to the public in a limited capacity. As a result, visitors to the museum must follow current University of Arkansas guidelines which requires the wearing of face masks or face coverings. Furthermore, we request that visitors not in the same group practice safe social distancing when in the museum and that groups limit themselves to 5 people at a time. Until further notice the museum will not be taking tour requests. We suggest utilizing our virtual tour which can be found below.
