Happy International Museum Day!

UMFA BuildingInternational Museum Day was created in 1977 and aims to increase public awareness of the role of museums in developing society. This year’s theme is Museum and Memory.

Did you know that the UMFA partners with a local care facility to provide monthly tours for their clients with Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory impairments? These tours have become an enriching part of our tour program.
