Small Museums Working Together

Join us!

Be part of a vibrant community of small museum professionals, volunteers, and allies working together to provide vibrant educational experiences.


Welcome to the Small Museum Association

The Small Museum Association is an all volunteer organization serving small museums in the mid-Atlantic region and beyond. SMA's mission is to develop and maintain a peer network among people who work for small museums, giving them opportunities to learn, share knowledge and support one another, so that they, in turn, can better serve their institutions, communities, and profession.

On this website, you will find information about SMA, including our annual conference, advocacy efforts, and resources for small museums. We welcome you to join our community as a member and to connect with us on our Facebook page. If you have questions, contact information for our board and conference committee members is available on the "About" page

Thank you to our 2018 Conference Sponsors!
