About the LWMA
The Lake Wales Museum Association, inc. is a charitable nonprofit corporation established in 2005 for the sole purpose of supporting the Lake Wales Museum. Association board members are dedicated volunteers from the business, legal, educational, and philanthropic sectors of our community. Our mission is to develop, administer and allocate tax-deductible private and corporate gifts to provide enhancements that strive for excellence.

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, and serve three-year terms. 
Officers are chosen annually by the board of directors at their reorganizational meeting, and serve one-year terms.

​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.
