Museum on Main Street

Museum on Main Street (MoMS) is part of the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, representing access to the Smithsonian for small communities via exhibitions, research, educational resources and programming.


State coordinator of MoMS since 1996, AHA has connected dozens of Alabama communities with Smithsonian traveling exhibits, encouraging participants to view exhibit topics through humanities lenses. Barns, fences, music, food and sports are just a few of the all-American subjects explored from local perspectives by Alabama MoMS communities over the years.
