About DMA



Formed in 1999, the Delaware Museum Association (DMA) works to create an active, strong, and diverse community among its individual and institutional members. DMA promotes realistic approaches to museum practices and problem solving through training, networking, partnerships, and advocacy.


​The Delaware Museum Association is able to continue serving Delaware's museum community through a new partnership with Delaware Humanities. With support from the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, Delaware Humanities works directly with DMA to carry out its mission of creating community among museums and cultural organizations throughout the state. Thanks to this partnership, DMA can increase its capacity to serve its museum constituents.
