Museum

Museums allow us to experience great art, to discover stories about objects, and to explore worlds both new and familiar. Within museums, arts and cultural activities may be very diverse. Yet at their heart is an emphasis on the exhibition and interpretation of art, objects or an historic space.

NYSCA advances museums and related professional service organizations by offering support for arts, cultural and heritage activities. Funding for museums underscores the importance of clear planning to foster stronger institutions, and encourages creative thinking to better serve the public.
