Western PA Museum Council

The Western Pennsylvania Museum Council, formerly the Greater Pittsburgh Museum Council, is a non-profit consortium founded in 1984.

The Western Pennsylvania Museum Council's organizational members are non-profit institutions that are located in western Pennsylvania and are open to the public. These organizations acquire, conserve, research, communicate, and exhibit artistic, cultural, industrial, natural and/or scientific heritage.

Currently, membership is comprised of museums in 17 counties. These counties are Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Blair, Butler, Cambria, Clarion, Crawford, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Lawrence, Somerset, Venango, Washington and Westmoreland.

The mission of the Museum Council is twofold. One is to educate the public about the value and diversity of western Pennsylvania museums and the other is to promote communication, collaboration, and professional development among its members.

The Western Pennsylvania Museum Council's programs and activities are funded through the continued support of its members.
