NEMO’s mission is to make sure that museums are an integral part of European society by promoting their work and value to policy makers. We do this by liaising with and informing EU institutions and other stakeholders in Europe about the crucial role of museums.

Our advocacy work for museums

NEMO liaises with European policy makers and EU Institutions in all areas relevant to museums. We produce recommendations and co-operate with partners in the European cultural field to make our demands heard. We also help our members to build successful advocacy campaigns and support museums to make an impact on various sectors.
