Thank you for your ongoing interest in the Building Museums Symposium.  We will be holding the next meeting in 2017 in Washington DC.  After 11 years we have decided to take a year off to redesign our program seeking new initiatives and formats for the conference.  Our plan is to host the 2017 symposium in Washington DC in the early spring.  We welcome your feedback on ways to make Building Museums relevant for you and others in the museum field.

About the Symposium




The symposium is organized under three inter-related themes: Vision, Implementation, and Sustainability (or Life after Opening) . The content of each day will reflect these themes across a broad range of museum sizes and scales, budgets, scope of building projects, disciplines, and collecting vs. non-collecting institutions.




This symposium is for architects, museum leaders, planners, project managers, technical experts, and all those who plan or implement new construction, renovation, or expansion projects for museums. Whether your institution is a small historic site under renovation, a mid-sized art museum planning an expansion, or a large children’s museum building a new facility, this symposium is for you.


Building Museums® is an annual international symposium created, produced and managed by the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums [MAAM] but is open to everyone with an interest in this important topic.




Attending the symposium will provide you the opportunity to:


  •     Better understand the process of planning, implementing, and surviving new construction, renovation, or expansion projects
  •     Examine case studies, current trends, topical issues, and specific projects related to building projects across a broad range of museum sizes and scales, budgets, scope of building projects, diversity of disciplines, and collecting vs. non-collections-holding institutions
  •     Actively discuss museum building projects with other museum professionals, architects, planners, project managers, and technical experts to better inform the process of building
  •     Access resources for architectural firms, consultants, museum projects, and museum leaders through the Building Museums Resource Guide.
