Founded in 1916, Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) is the largest cultural organization in the Inland Northwest with five underground galleries, store, education center, community room and the Center for Plateau Cultural Studies. It serves more than 100,000 visitors a year. It is one of Washington State's five Smithsonian affiliates and is accredited by the Alliance of American Museums. The museum resides in the historic Browne's Addition neighborhood of Spokane, Washington.
The museum also includes the historic 1898 Campbell House, library and archives, an auditorium and outdoor amphitheater. The exhibits and programs focus on three major disciplines: American Indian and other cultures, regional history and visual art.
The museum preserves and cultivates the heritage of the Inland Northwest people through collections, exhibitions, and programs that bring their stories to life. Its collection of Plateau Indian art and artifacts is the largest in the world; more than one million objects are maintained and preserved including fine art, artifacts, documents, photographs and material culture from the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The world-renowned Joel E. Ferris Research Archives offers researchers from around the world an opportunity to explore our vast collection.
