Museum Assessment Program

"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 for more information about MAP or contact us at or 202.289.9118.

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