The Museum is fortunate to have earned the respect of thousands from outside of the institutional walls. This is evidenced by the partnerships that have been fostered with other leading institutions, including the University of Dayton, Wright State University, and nearly every major museum in the region. Relationships built on mutual respect with the Dayton Art Institute, Dayton History, the National Museum of the US Air Force and the Dayton Metro Public Library, among many others, further point to the importance of the Museum’s mission, but maybe more significantly to the reputation of the Museum’s professionals.
