Museums Matter Now!
We are divided as a nation—politically, socially, culturally. But museums are one place where Americans can come together—to learn, to think, to enjoy, to see ourselves reflected, to understand others who are different, and to heal. Museums have a significant role to play in igniting dialogue and change in our communities through dynamic programs, collections, and exhibitions—the sky
is the limit.
Whether you are an emerging professional or a seasoned veteran, the MAAM Conference is the place to find the most up-to-date information to make your museum thrive. Join us in Baltimore, Charm City, and the place for fun, food and great museums—for the 2018 Annual Conference. Our sessions will spark your creativity and offer practical solutions and workable models for making museums really matter in their communities.
Envision change, implement new ideas, take action, and secure funding
