What is CMA?

The Coastal Museums Association (CMA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization dedicated to serving its members by providing a forum for networking, discussing issues impacting the museum and cultural community, exchanging ideas and experiences, and facilitating professional development.

Founded in 1984, CMA is comprised of museums and cultural sites from Savannah and the surrounding coastal region.


Why Museums Matter

Did you know that there are approximately 850 million visits each year to American museums, more than all major league sporting events and theme parks combined? Did you know that the nonprofit arts and culture industry annually generates $22 billion in local, state and federal tax revenues, far more than it receives from government sources.
