This group explores topics relating to the fields of museum education, audience development, intercultural dialogue and lifelong learning. We organise exchanges and learning through regular study visits to different museums, as well as producing studies and reports.

Our Actions

  • We encourage and publish researches on topics of interest of our members.
  • We arrange study visits to learn about museum and heritage education practices in different European countries.
  • We organize meetings and special programmes with guest speakers during NEMO’s annual conference.


We are currently working on...

  • Researching the topic of how learning in museums is facilitated by objects as opposed to media  and other educational tools.
  • Addressing the issue of museums as socially responsible organisations.

Next Meeting

    Study visit hosted by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. Exact dates are still to be confirmed. Call for participants will be released in summer 2020, exact date is to be confirmed.
