Museum Day Hours of Operation: 10:00 am ‐ 5:00 pm

The mission of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art is to broaden the knowledge, understanding, interpretation, and appreciation of the visual arts and culture of the American South through its events, permanent collections, changing exhibitions, educational programs, publications, and research. In 2014, we welcomed over 56,000 visitors and enriched the lives of a record-breaking 10,500 area students through our education programs. Our award-winning music series Ogden After Hours offers visitors a weekly opportunity to celebrate the music of the South in an intimate and unique way, surrounded by the Museum's diverse collection and in the Museum's architecturally-distinct setting. Come See the South with us!
