Museum Association of New YorkThe Museum Association of New York is the key strategic resource for the New York state museum community.

Chartered by the New York State Education Department in 1962, the Museum Association of New York (MANY) is a nationally recognized state museum association committed to strengthening the organizational development of the state’s diverse museum and heritage organization communities.  As a member-based information and advocacy resource, MANY engages in a variety of programs and services addressing legislative and policy issues, analyzing and collecting trend data, and building information networks. Recent programmatic efforts are focusing on future leadership issues in the field resulting in the publication of a white paper, discussion guides, and outreach to graduate programs, graduate students and young professionals.



Museums, historical sites and heritage societies are a vibrant and essential element of New York’s cultural life. Museumwise is a statewide membership organization dedicated to providing resources, training and expertise to help New York’s museums and heritage organizations strengthen their capacity to better serve their communities and meet their institutional missions.
