Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee Invites the Public to Visit Museums in Florida During Sixth Annual March of Museums
Florida Department of State and museums statewide partner to share variety and versatility of museums
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee invites the public to visit museums in Florida during the sixth annual March of Museums. March of Museums is a statewide initiative led by the Florida Department of State throughout the month of March that celebrates the diversity of Florida’s museums and the many benefits they provide to local communities.
“As Florida’s Chief Cultural Officer, I’m proud to highlight the important role that museums play in preserving Florida’s history and resources,” said Florida Secretary of State Laurel M. Lee. “With institutions focused on history, art, nature, and more, the diversity of participants in March of Museums illustrates the many aspects of Florida’s unique cultural landscape.”
The department is hosting MarchofMuseums.com, which offers a listing and map of museums by region, highlights the mission or collections of each institution, and offers a calendar of events taking place during the month of March. The department encourages visitors and Floridians to take advantage of the March of Museums initiative and to spend some time at one of their favorite museums, or to discover a new museum, and use #MarchofMuseums to share pictures from their museum visits on social media.
