Enabling museums and their people to develop their capacity to inspire and engage their communities.

Charter

Museums Australia promotes museums to all levels of government and the community, and fosters high standards in all aspects of museum and gallery management through research, policy formulation, publications, and training. Museums Australia offers opportunities for advancement for individuals, and leadership in workplace and industry issues.

As the peak body for the museum industry, Museums Australia (Victoria) aims to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas in ways which affirm the value of museums, stimulate debate about principles and standards, and inform and inspire their staff, volunteers, and supporters.
