The mission of Museums Alberta is to promote understanding, access and excellence within Alberta's museums for the benefit of society.
The Museums Alberta Secretariat creates, implements, evaluates and communicates programs and services for Council, the Association membership and the public, using its knowledge and experience.
The Alberta Museums Association was incorporated in 1971 as a non-profit society by individuals, both museum staff and volunteers, who wanted to promote the development of Alberta's Museums.
Today the Association is a members-driven organization that serves the needs of its membership. It consists of an elected, volunteer council, volunteer committees and a secretariat, each providing assistance, advice, information and counseling as needed by the membership and the public.
