TAM's Statewide Network

Posted By: Brittany Petrilli TAM Blog,

In an effort to continue connecting museums & museum professionals throughout our vast state, TAM is headed to all of the Texas Heritage Trail Regions this year! Each of our TAM Fellows will be hosting a digital education programming workshop in their respective trail region based on the work they submitted in our Virtual Program Camp last month. Every Trail Region's workshop will be specific to the TAM Fellow who hosts them, so you won't want to miss out on any!

The Texas Trail Regions were designated in the late 1960s as a tourism initiative and were popularized in the 1990s by our friends at the Texas Historical Commission in their award-winning Texas Heritage Trails Program. White and blue signs mark the 10 trails, each named after historic or geographic identifiers that are unique to each region. 

As we head to all ten of the distinctive trail regions, we want to highlight our TAM Institutional Members in each region. The institutions across Texas represent TAM's robust statewide network.
