Interior Museum Program

The Interior Museum Program looks after one of the largest and most important museum collections in the world. On behalf of the American people, we coordinate and support the stewardship work of the ten bureaus and offices that manage museum collections. Through our work from policy writing and professional development to technical support and exhibits, we aim to ensure that the diverse collections held by the Department of the Interior are preserved, valued and enjoyed by everyone.
