MAM strives to strengthen all of Montana's Museums
56th MAM Annual Conference
Join us as we come together from across Montana to meet literally in the middle of the state. This year’s theme highlights the vital roles museums play in breaking down barriers and prejudices in our communities. We’ll explore practical solutions that strike a perfect balance between small nonprofits and major museum operations. It’s all about getting back to basics, centering ourselves, and embracing the essence of what museums are truly about. See you there!
