2020 Annual Statewide Museum Conference POSTPONED
The Strategic Museum: Mission in Community
April 19-21, 2020

PA Museums Annual Statewide Museum Conference is Postponed

COVID-19 has generated significant concern around the world and in Pennsylvania. We have followed developments, recommendations, and responses from various local, state, national, and international agencies and organizations. In order to comply with recommendations from many levels, and out of caution and concern for our members, volunteers, staff, and the greater museum community, PA Museums will postpone its statewide museum conference scheduled for April 19-21, 2020 in Pittsburgh.

We will be rescheduling our conference for a time later in 2020, in the August or September timeframe, to be announced soon.

For those registered to attend the conference, PA Museums will be providing options regarding payments we have already received:

  • Registrations received will be honored for our re-scheduled conference.
  • Full refunds will be provided for those who wish to receive one.
  • Registration fees may be donated to support PA Museums.

Please feel free to email Rusty Baker, Executive Director, PA Museums if you have any questions.
