The Oren Dunn City Museum is an open air museum in Tupelo, Mississippi. It includes two history museums and a series of historic structures.

Opened in 1984, the Oren Dunn City Museum was established through the efforts of the history buff, Mr. Oren Dunn (which is also why it was named after him). It was Mr. Dunn?s idea to create a museum using the existing buildings in the city and display items loaned by locals as well as stuff from his personal collection.

The Oren Dunn City Museum features a 1937 dairy barn filled with items about the history of Tupelo and the Northeastern Mississippi region, an 1870s dogtrot house, two early 1940s Tupelo Fire Trucks, 1949 Lee County Bookmobile, a Memphis streetcar turned into the Dudie?s Diner.
