Your voice matters. You don’t have to be in Washington, D.C. to make the case for museums. Repeatedly, advocates have secured bipartisan Congressional support for federal agencies supporting museums and defeated efforts to eliminate federal cultural agencies (IMLS, NEA and NEH). Your support will help advocates continue to make the case for museums.
For over 100 years, the American Alliance of Museums has been championing the cause of museums, and helping museums steward their collections professionally and ethically. AAM is the one organization representing all types of museums, from art to zoo, and including history, science, children’s museums, and much more. Thank you for helping support the cause of museums!
