AMM 2016 attendees participate in an unexpected tour at member museum American Swedish Institute

Since its founding in 1927, the Association of Midwest Museums (AMM) has sought to connect museums across the eight-state region of the Midwest, including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Our mission is to strengthen museums in the Midwest by providing nationally relevant, regionally specific programs, products, and networking opportunities.

AMM’s membership includes over 600 professionals and students, museums and other non-profit organizations, and corporations that serve the industry. Our member organizations range from small county historical societies to large science centers located in nearly every market in the Midwest. AMM is dedicated to empowering museum professionals with regional resources in order to reach their most aspirational goals. 

Make sure that you have a voice in the largest museum association in the Midwest and don’t miss out on available benefits. Join the AMM community!
