The Idaho Association of Museums (IAM) promotes and aids the enrichment and advancement of museums as educational centers, agencies of research, cultural centers, and the ultimate public repositories for objects having cultural, aesthetic, scientific, and historical significance.


IAM furthers cooperation and communication among museums, museum workers, and others interested in museums, and fosters and supports special training for professionals and volunteers. It sponsors public and museological programs that encourage cultural involvement, and generally furthers public understanding and interest in the goals of its member organizations.

Museums Advocacy Day

Proudly, we are sending a IAM board representative to Washington, DC to advocate on behalf of Idaho Institutions! 

Museums Advocacy Day is a unique opportunity to join with fellow museum professionals and supporters to make the case for museums.

Together as a field, we’ve defeated several threats to eliminate federal agencies supporting museums, but we must keep making our case to Congress. Legislators do not know how their decisions affect museums if they don’t hear directly from you—the museums and people they represent. The resources and insights you’ll gain as a participant will help sustain your museum’s future and the future of the field.

Use #museumsadvocacy and #museumsadvocacy2020 to join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.
