Ohio Museums Association 2018 Annual Conference

April 15, 2018 - April 16, 2018

In an ever-changing landscape of new technology, new concepts and new experiences, there is a choice: ask big questions and generate extraordinary ideas – or risk becoming obsolete.

Across Ohio, museums are tackling the ideas and questions that reshape the way we function, change the way we think and communicate, and impact how we grow and serve both our mission and our communities.

This year’s host city knows a thing or two about making new ideas take flight. Join us in Dayton, April 15 and 16 as we explore these topics and more at the 2018 Ohio Museums Association’s Annual Conference – Dayton.
