The Strength of MANY

We are MANY organizations with one powerful voice.

We are MANY – Serving as a central resource for New York's 2,000 history, art, science and children’s museums, historic houses, zoos and botanical gardens.

We are MANY – the Museum Association of New York.

Through professional development, advocacy and annual conferences, MANY serves the museum community to ensure that New York’s world-renowned cultural landscape is strong and vibrant for generations to come.


Throughout the 2014 NYS Museums in Action conference we had several opportunities to introduce the development of a Museum Education Act in New York State. Originally discussed in 2007, the Act will provide the financial support for museums and schools, across New York State, to create meaningful educational programs, facilitate teacher and student access to cultural institutions, and to strengthen the bond between New York State’s unparalleled cultural resources and its classrooms.
