The Maryland Museums Association is an alliance of historical and cultural institutions that collect, hold, interpret, and protect the cultural and material heritage within the State. The association advocates for members by enhancing professionalism in those institutions and individuals, and promoting awareness of museum interests.


Open Survey

Museum Collection Needs Survey

The Maryland History and Culture Collaborative (MHCC) is an informal gathering of individuals from throughout the state of Maryland whose personal and professional interests include the acquisition, preservation, management of and public access to collections and sites related to Maryland history and culture. The MHCC Collections Group is seeking to identify needs and assess areas where opportunity for greater collaboration exists, particularly centered on collections issues. To learn what areas institutions could most use support for their collections, we ask that you take a few minutes to complete this survey. The data produced by this survey will allow the Collections Group to plan strategically on how best to help institutions connect on collections projects.

Small museums are uniquely positioned to pivot quickly to respond to the changing needs of our audiences. As we reflect on the impacts of the dual pandemics that came to the forefront in 2020, that of COVID-19 and racial injustice around the world, how can we seize the moment to create lasting, meaningful change for our institutions and our communities? If not now, when?
