The University Museum is open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. The museum features a collection of "approximately 500 19th century scientific instruments, used by John Millington and Frederick A.P. Barnard to teach university students from 1848 to 1861." These include telescopes, models of large machines, and demonstration devices for the teaching of natural philosophy, physics, and astronomy. "One of the finest university collections of its kind in the United States," the David M. Robinson Collection of Greek & Roman Antiquities covers the period from 1500 B.C. to 300 A.D. The collection contains Greek and Roman sculpture, Greek decorated pottery, architectural fragments, small artifacts in terracotta and bronze, and Greek and Roman coins. Paintings by Mississippian Theora Hamblett, the Seymour Lawrence Gallery of American Art, and the Mary Buie and Kate Skipwith Collections are also featured.
