Purpose and Mission
The purpose of the Mississippi Museums Association is to promote professional communication between all types of museums, public and private, within the State of Mississippi and to promote a statewide public awareness of the value of museums as educational and research institutions at the local, county, regional and state levels.
Founded in 1976 by a group of museum professionals, MMA is governed by a ten-person board of volunteers who represent various museums across the state. An annual meeting is held each March.
Whether you are an employee, volunteer, trustee, patron or fan of any of Mississippi’s museums, membership in MMA is an indication of your commitment to excellence in Mississippi’s museums. It’s inexpensive, and the benefits are numerous and rewarding. Join today and become involved in the Mississippi Museums Association. Learn more
