July 1 MAP deadline approaching!

“The MAP program is crucial for any organization looking to gain a sense of standing against museum benchmarks and assess its strengths and weaknesses. The self study, site visit and report assisted our staff, volunteers and board in necessary education growth. The report will be an invaluable tool for our museum long into the future.” – Leo Landis, Education Director and Curator, Salisbury House and Gardens, Des Moines, IA


The Museum Assessment Program (MAP) is an IMLS funded program available to small and mid-sized museums of all types. During MAP your museum conducts a self-study, consults with a museum professional who will provide a customized site visit and report  and gains the tools to become a stronger institution.

·         The MAP process is customized to your museum.

·         The application is easy to complete and 98% of museums that apply get accepted.

·         Choose one of three assessment types: Organizational, Collections Stewardship or Community Engagement.


IMLS -funded MAP grants provide $4,000 of consultative resources and services to participating museums. Become the next museum to take advantage of MAP. The upcoming application deadline is July 1.

Visit www.aam-us.org/map for more information about MAP or contact us at map@aam-us.org or 202.289.9118.


MAP is administered by the American Association of Museums and supported through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own
    blog and was curious what all is needed
    to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain.

    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  2. This website was… how do I say it? Relevant!!
    Finally I’ve found something which helped me. Thanks a

  3. What you may not know is the amount of education and strict standards carpenters must qualify for to
    be considered as professionals, especially in Canada. Take into consideration the look and feel of the
    advertisement. I prefer to use particle board because it is less expensive than plywood and works just as well.
