Museum Of Motherhood (M.O.M.) the first and only facility of its kind. We are an International museum and teaching facility that focuses on the evolution of family.
Our unique perspective highlights the role of women and mothers throughout history and in contemporary culture; promoting education, starting conversations, and featuring thought-provoking exhibits. We believe a more comprehensive understanding of pregnancy, birth and the value of mother-work will lead to healthier and happier homes, more productive workplaces and better social policies.
The Museum of Motherhood focuses specifically on the roles of women in the sphere of motherhood and generally on the topic of birth and caregiving. Eighty-two percent of the female population will produce offspring in their lifetimes. There are 85.4 million mothers in the United States, and 100% of all human beings have a mother, yet comparative analysis of family systems that produce happy and healthy offspring are woefully understudied, as are the sociological, anthropological, cultural, and historic consequences of parenthood.
Until the Museum of Motherhood (M.O.M.) was created, no place on Earth collected, preserved, and disseminated information about the many roles of mothers, and the many types of family. Many museums are well presented, educational, and entertaining. Yet, in addition, how many discuss the historical contributions of the entire female half of the population and of their contribution toward the next generation? Our scope is uniquely comprehensive and focused.
As ‘the most important job we will ever do’, education on the subject is supremely lacking. Therefore, we see the need for a shared interdisciplinary forum in order to help foster universities in the development of Mother Studies curriculum.
We provide a space where researchers, educators, service providers, and individuals concerned with the institutional elements of motherhood can share and learn. We also believe a database of these institutions, courses and teachers should be made accessible because information needs to be brought to those who would benefit from it most.
Our online portal and in-house resources reference links to organizations that can benefit families with better services and social policies. According to the UN, increasing programming that serves at-risk families, elevates women economically, and facilitates the work-life balance has been shown to enrich lives. We can contribute to many families ability to function by preventing violence against women, facilitating information about healthful nutrition, and making counseling available.
