Bringing Museums Together

workshopsGather, connect and reflect with colleagues from other museums and historic sites at these FREE workshops!

As cultural and heritage destinations, we are always striving to raise our profile and demonstrate our value to the community. In 2012, the Minnesota Association of Museums completed a major survey of Minnesota museums and their economic impact. Come learn about the survey, and take away good news you can use in your communities! Each workshop will also include tips and tricks to implement tomorrow in your organization.
