 "Fully embracing and participating in MAP has enabled us to quickly and
methodically improve and realign museum practices to better meet our
challenges. From board education to community engagement, the museum is
well on its way to re-envisioning its future." - Billye Chabot, Executive
Director, Seward House Museum

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 December 1.

Visit www.aam-us.org/map<http://www.aam-us.org/map> for more information
about MAP or contact us at map at aam-us.org<mailto:map at aam-us.org> or

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