Welcome to the Museums Association of Montana
We are a non-profit professional organization whose goal is to strengthen all of Montana’s museums.
We accomplish this by supporting their efforts to collect, preserve, and interpret our shared heritage for all Montanans and our visitors. By furthering the missions of Montana’s museums through collaboration, the promotion of standard best practices, grant-sponsored projects, and advocacy on the local, state, and national levels, we will ensure the preservation of our rich history.
