About the LWMA
The Lake Wales Museum Association is an all-volunteer organization, incorporated in 2015. We are an IRS-qualified 501-C3 Not-For-Profit corporation, meaning that donations of cash or in-kind service may be deductible for Federal Income Tax purposes.
Our goal is the complete rehabilitation and productive use of all four Lake Wales Museum properties, and the adjacent vacant lands. 

The LWMA is led by a volunteer board of directors, including:  

Directors are elected at our Annual Meeting held the second Tuesday in May. Officers are chosen by the board of directors.

​Upon incorporation, one of our first steps was the creation of a Museum Site and Facilities Master Use Plan, which will guide the renovation of museum assets. The details of our plan can be viewed under the Master Use Plan tab.

We invite you to become a member of the Lake Wales Museum Association. Please see our Contact Page in the menu above for details.
