MOMCC was established in 1978 with the goal of furthering the interchange of materials, information and ideas within the history field.
We welcome membership and participation from administrators, volunteers, interpreters, curators, historians, educators, maintenance/facilities staff, gift shop workers, facilitators, docents and anyone else with an interest in history and public education.
The purpose of MOMCC is to further promote excellence and to provide a forum for the interchange of materials, information, ideas and consideration of professional issues within the open air, interactive and historical museum professions.
