Museum Management

Museum management is a very broad theme that takes into account all aspects concerned with the management of a museum. This includes curation, collection management, public education, exhibitions, and technology, to name a few. 

This page will act as a collection point for, and exchange of, best practices examples for museum, as well as museum organisation management - allowing a transfer of knowledge between museums and museum organisations of all different shapes and sizes. 

Through better management of museums and museum organisations, the public at large can benefit in the best possible way from the rich resources museums offer. 

To access publications and other documents that regard Museum Management, head to the Reading Corner.

Since 2018, NEMO offers Political Internships in Museums, which aims to give politicians (and civil servants) a greater understanding of museum work.
