About

PA Museums is Pennsylvania’s statewide museum association. We create and support museum community in Pennsylvania through our advocacy work, professional development programs, information sharing, networking projects, and an annual awards program to recognize exemplary work in the Commonwealth.

PA Museums began as the Pennsylvania Federation of Historical Societies in 1905 and advocated for the creation of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC). We are an independent nonprofit organization unrelated to state government, and we rely upon our programs, charitable giving, and membership to support our work.

The PA Museums membership page is currently under revision. If you want to become a PA Museums member, contact rusty.baker@pamuseums.org
