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.

On the page Political Advocacy you find useful resources  by the Netherlands Museums Association on their initiative of political internships. Since 2018, NEMO offers Political Internships in Museums. The initiative draws inspiration from the Netherlands Museums Association's project, but brings the concept to a European level.
