Founded in 1975 and accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1987, MAM has always been a flagship institution in culturally savvy Missoula, Montana. After a $5.3 million capital campaign and grand opening in September 2006, MAM offers a spectacular attraction in the heart of the historic downtown: a fully accessible, free, public museum that boasts six exhibition spaces, a library, education center, and an inviting information lounge.
The successful building design has seamlessly fused the 100-year-old Carnegie Library building with a contemporary addition, creating the ideal environment for exhibiting, celebrating, and preserving MAM's growing contemporary art collection.
