Small Museums Association

The Small Museums Association is a coalition of local museums and historical societies in greater southeastern Michigan. It was formed in the 1980s at the suggestion of Michigan state legislator Nate Jonker after he met with representatives of a few local historical societies at the Flushing Area Museum. Member organizations take turns hosting the semi-annual networking meetings.

For more information on the Small Museums Association, contact Clare Hatten of the Grand Blanc Heritage Society bchat@aol.com or Mary Wilson, Flushing Area Historical Society fahs@att.net.

Most of these organizations are quite small, and many don't have a permanent home. Contact information may change quickly, but this list is the most recent available. To report errors & updates, please contact fahs@att.net
