The Northeastern Ohio Inter-Museum Council

Northeastern Ohio Inter-Museum Council

Founded in 1942, The Northeastern Ohio Inter-Museum Council serves over 140 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 Judith Sheridan at
