Founded in 1942, The Northeastern Ohio
Inter-Museum Council serves over 130 institutional members in Cuyahoga and six
adjacent counties. Members range from large, internationally renowned museums in
major urban centers to metro parks, nature facilities and small local history
museums spread across parts of the Western Reserve.
The purpose of this organization is
to enable its members to preserve history and works of art, to advance science
and natural history, or to study and display works of art, minerals, animal, and
plant life. NEOIMC members work together to find solutions to their shared
concerns in the fields of finance, legislation, public relations, education,
personnel and related fields, and do what is necessary and proper to carry out
the purposes for which individual member organizations were created.
The Council provides a group forum
for airing common goals and issues; sponsors educational workshops for museum
staff and volunteers; hosts general meetings at member museums; and provides
e-mail message board broadcasts for member museum activities. The Council's
public products include printed and Web versions of the Guide to Northeastern
Ohio Museums.We also have a facebook page.
The Council board of trustees accepts
membership applications from museums and organizations with museum functions in
the six-county area. To obtain an application and further information, e-mail
