Learning Exchanges

NEMO's mobility scheme for peer-to-peer international exchanges of national museum organisations aims to exchange good management practices and business models between organisations and to allow a transfer of knowledge between more professional organisations and those less professionally organised. NEMO works for a structured, transferable, international, sustainable and output-oriented mobility scheme between museum organisations in Europe.

Participation at NEMO's Learning Exchanges is open to staff members or members of the steering committees/executive boards of NEMO members and associated members and those appointed by a NEMO member. Find out more through our facts at a glance or by browsing through our recent exchanges below.

Participate as a non-member
Non-members active in the museum sector are since February 2018 welcome to participate in NEMO Learning Exchanges for a fee of 250 euro. The offer presents an opportunity to attend NEMO activities while considering becoming a member. The NEMO membership costs 250 euro annually, meaning that a non-member organisation attending a NEMO activity can become a member free of charge. As always are NEMO capacity building activities free of charge for members and supported by travel grants. If you wish to attend a NEMO Learning Exchange as a non-member, please get in touch with office@ne-mo.org. Find out more about a NEMO membership here!

About the Museum 
The Hungarian Open Air Museum represents one of the most popular and sought-after museum types in Hungary that has significant ethnographical and historical collections. The Hungarian Open Air Museum is the largest open air museum in Hungary and successfully creates exhibitions and programs that attract a wide variety of visitors. The museum prides itself on generating awareness and participating in movements that pertain to social responsibility.  

Pulszky Society – Hungarian Museum Association
The professional non-governmental organisation of Hungarian museum workers was founded in 1989-1990 by acclaimed museum professionals. Its main aim has always been to formulate and represent the interests of the national cultural heritage preserved and utilized in the museums and those who currently work in this field. Today, the association has over 500 members from all parts of the country.  The Pulszky Society has been present in most of the decision-making processes and closely works with new laws and regulations in connection with cultural heritage and the museum field. Its governing body consists of 21 elected members, who elect the seven members of the presidium. Sections in different fields (small museums, conservation and preservation, etc.) have also been formed in order to organize conferences, workshops and to keep professionals in contact.
