The Mission of the Martha's Vineyard Museum:
"To bring together persons interested in the history of Martha's Vineyard, to collect and preserve significant information and materials relevant to local history, to maintain museums and libraries and to disseminate historical information and stimulate interest in the Island's unique heritage."

In October 2003, the organization's original 1923 mission statement was revised to reflect the Museum's current goals. The modified text contains the original statement plus the following text, which appears in the organization's By-Laws:

The Martha’s Vineyard Museum is committed as a museum to inspire interest and understanding of the island’s unique history, culture and physical characteristics by collecting, preserving and presenting relevant materials and information to a wide audience.  In order to achieve these goals the Museum will:

    - present educational programs
    - Add to its museum, library, and archive collections
    - Actively involve the people of Martha’s Vineyard
    - Mount exhibitions on a variety of topics
    - Support scholarly research
    - Produce publications
