Advocacy

The American Alliance of Museums works to unite the country’s museums from art museums to zoos. The Alliance helps museums tell our story and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press and the public.

Record Support in Congress for Museum Funding

Museum advocates have once again set a new record for congressional support. This year, a remarkable 160 Representatives and 33 Senators signed on to letters calling for robust funding for the Office of Museum Services (OMS) at the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Learn more in our March 25 Alliance Advocacy Alert.


Museums Advocacy Day Photos Now Available!

On Feb. 22-23 museum advocates gathered in Washington, DC for the eighth annual Museums Advocacy Day. See the photos from this year's program and events, including the Congressional Breakfast, Meetings on Capitol Hill and Congressional Reception.

Join the Movement: Speak Up for Museums

In February, museum advocates visited 368 Congressional offices to make the case that museums are essential educational assets and economic engines. “We’re thrilled to help our museum colleagues tell their story to members of Congress,” said Alliance President and CEO Laura L. Lott. Now you can use these tools and materials to get involved from home.
