The Mountain-Plains Museums Association (MPMA) is a regional museum association that provides professional services to museums of all kinds in ten states: Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming. This membership organization was established in 1953. MPMA has a central office in Littleton, CO. Its governing structure includes a board of directors and numerous committees and affiliates.
MPMA is one of six regional associations in the United States that works in conjunction with the American Alliance of Museums (AAM). These associations form the Council of Regions (CRA) and meet twice yearly to advise AAM on issues relating to museums in each of the six regions.
