Siouxland Heritage Museums Alliance

Organized in 1985, the Siouxland Heritage Museums Alliance acknowledges the Siouxland Heritage Museums as an important cultural organization in the region. It is the primary support and volunteer group for the Museums system in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The Alliance promotes public awareness and application of the Museums and assists directly with fund-raising, programs and special events.

The Alliance Board of Directors meets on the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. under the group’s official bylaws and an annual meeting is held for all members. Working with the Museums’ staff and the Board of Trustees, the Alliance develops ideas to assist the Museums with its mission and goals.

What Your Membership Supports

Members of the Alliance receive the following

Volunteer Program
The museums are served by over 85 volunteers annually. Volunteers contribute over 3,500 hours per year between the Old Courthouse Museum and the Pettigrew Home and Museum. Volunteers are essential in maintaining the quality of the museums for the community. Supporting the volunteer program gives the museums the ability to thank its volunteers for their time and talent.

Conservation
Through the Alliance, the museums have been able to establish an art and object conservation program. Over the years, several painting and artifact conservation projects have been completed in order to regain their original appearance.

The Alliance supports many events throughout the year at the museums. The Pettigrew Holiday Open House, Exhibit openings, the Halloween Party, and other events are all made possible through Alliance contributions.
