Apply to the Museum Assessment Program

The next MAP application deadline will be February 1, 2023.

“The Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego participated in the MAP program in 2007 and 2014. We are grateful to have this program offered to museums. It is the best assessment tool for validating policies and identifying best practices for your institution. Since the completion of the MAP program, we strengthen our operations and deliver more impactful programs.”

Luanne Kanzawa, Executive Director, Japanese Friendship Garden, CA
