American Museum Society

The mission of the American Museum Society is to promote public interest in the development of the cultural and educational aspects of the Museum of American Architecture and Decorative Arts of Houston Baptist University. Members also work to assist the Director of the Museum with its operation.

Regular meetings are held monthly in homes, and members enjoy presentations, updates from the Director, and time spent together. AMS also hosts a fundraising luncheon each February.
