Museum Services

About the Museum services program

The Museum Services program's mission is to advance the value of museums within Utah and to enable the broadest physical, intellectual, and emotional access to collections and programs. The program helps Utah museums improve their ability to:

    • care for and manage collections
    • develop quality educational resources
    • provide access to collections for research
    • identify and successfully compete for financial resources

Workshop Calendar


Visit our Utah Collections Preservation webpage to learn more about our webinar and workshop calendars.


The Utah Museums Association and Utah Division of Arts & Museums are facilitating online conversations to keep you connected and share ideas about timely topics relevant to the museum community.

Each conversation will have a topic to keep us focused. If you have suggestions for topics or would be willing to lead a topic, please let us know by filling out this form.

After each Museum Exchange, we will pull together resources shared with the group and add them here.
