The Museum Of Motherhood is moving to The Factory in the warehouse district this August in St. Petersburg, Florida. From that new location we plan on executing quarterly exhibits. The first, which runs August 28-Oct., is titled ‘Motherhood On Motion’ curated by Liliana Beltran in collaboration with me, Martha Joy Rose. Additionally we anticipate sharing aspects of our herstorical exhibitions permanently throughout the year, along with a compelling ‘Futurisms’ exhibit, interactive opportunities, and we will have a vibrant store onsite.
MoM has acquired the Mother Tree for our permanent collection! Thanks to each of your who donated through our GoFundMe, our website, or by private contribution. Thanks too, artist Helen Hiebert, artist and creator for trusting us and for her additional support. Thanks to all of you we have succeeded in achieving this wonderful milestone.
May is Mothers’ Month!
It’s about time.
A women’s museum for mothers. All kinds of mothers. All kinds of people.
I’m Joy Rose, the founder of the Museum of Motherhood. I’m inviting you to add your service, business, organization to our online directory. It’s free and open access to the public so others can find you – Just $30 to register yourself.

Let’s raise our voices. Let’s amp up the volume! We’re here – with a legacy project – and we want to share your stories with the world.
