WELCOME TO THE MUSEUMS ASSOCIATION OF THE CARIBBEAN!
Our mission is to create a network that aids museums and cultural organisations across the Caribbean to share and benefit from their common skills and experiences. We have been supporting museums since 1987: helping to develop standards and best practice; serving as advisors to governments and the public on museum development; exchanging information and ideas; connecting organizations internationally; and conserving and preserving our natural and cultural heritage. Every year, we host a conference and annual general meeting for our members and other delegates within the region. Our most recent conference took place 11-16 November 2019 in Martinique, and was organized together with the Collectivité Territoriale de Martinique.
