It's Good to Go Green! The Time is Now!
The Association of Midwest Museums is pleased to announce an exciting new initiative and is taking the lead to promote green business practices,
environmentally-friendly facility management, and sustainable programming at museums. We invite museums around the Midwest to join us and to take immediate
action to begin the transition to implement green practices.
In the coming months, AMM will begin sharing information about green practices and will plan programs on sustainable museum management and practices.
If you would like to share your success stories or help plan programs on green museum practices, please contact Brian Bray at
or at 314-746-4557.
