Exhibits Available to Rent

Levine Museum of the New South offers a variety of traveling exhibits. Since our founding in 1991, the Museum has created and organized a number of original exhibits, many of which have been adapted to travel and are now available to rent. These exhibits have a wide appeal and have relevance beyond the South, as many draw connections between the past and the present, and give historical context to contemporary topics. They are organized to be suitable for a variety of institutions.  We invite you to browse our exhibits currently available.
