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 assists Utah museums in improving 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
2022 COLLECTIONS PRESERVATION WORKSHOPS
Starting in January 2022, we will be offering monthly webinars (free) and quarterly 2-part in-person workshops ($10). Visit our Utah Collections Preservation website where you can find webinar and workshop calendars and registration links to reserve your spot!
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.

old museum directory
The Utah Division of Arts & Museums invites you to discover Utah’s museums through a variety of exhibits and programs our museums have to offer. More than 260 Utah museums offer you a rich and diverse experience in a wide range of subjects, from art, culture, and history, to science, botanical gardens, and zoos. This directory has divided Utah museums into six regions, with cities listed alphabetically in each region: Wasatch Front, Northern, Eastern, West Desert, Central, and Southwest.
