What is MAM?


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.

A Message from our President

Greetings Museums Association of Montana and welcome to the MAM website. Across the state of Montana, we are blessed with a rich history and many wonderful museums dedicated to preserving and sharing our history with residents and visitors alike.

Montana’s history is diverse and important to the understanding our state and its people. It ranges from prehistory to the present day, from the mines of Butte to ranching history of Eastern Montana. We are home to over 200 museums both large and small. The work we undertake allows the citizens of our state to take pride in where they are from and to better understand our current culture.

MAM is an organization dedicated to helping museums throughout the state to better tell their stories, preserve our historic structures and artifacts, and advocate for support of our museums. Annually we host a museums conference and provide workshops for our members. We also act as voice for Montana’s museums assuring that our communities and our elected officials understand the value we bring to the state.

Montana’s museums aren’t just important to the past, they are also a valuable economic driver that brings people to the treasure state and promote economic development.

Thank you for the work you do and for your dedication to Montana’s history!

Matt Lautzenheiser, MAM President
