Calendar of Events

McGuffey Readers next to the William Holmes McGuffey Museum wordmark

Spring 2020

All events are at 3 p.m. in the Miami University Art Museum unless otherwise noted.


The Oxford Museum Association and McGuffey House and Museum meeting planned for March 18th at the Knolls of Oxford is being cancelled this year.

The Novel Coronavirus is creating quite a disruption to the Oxford Community. As a result of the classroom closures on Miami campus and students leaving, the live chorus entertainment portion of our program is not available. In addition, the Knolls of Oxford campus has restricted some visitors and the large group meeting such as ours is not available.

Lastly, considering the health and well-being of our members and guests we do not want to expose you to an increased risk.

Our priority is to protect you.

Oxford Museum Association
