Welcome to our new website! We are still in the process of making it trilingual. We thank you for your patience while it is being updated. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact us.


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.

Letter from MAC’s President

The health and safety of our members, and that of your public and staff, is extremely important to us. We all share concerns about the current COVID-19 situation and as MAC members are located all over the region, we advise you to check the advice and directives of your own national authorities regarding containment measures and travel, and comply with these recommendations. The national or regional health ministries and authorities have published advice on containment measures on their websites, and these should be monitored closely as the situation is evolving rapidly. 

If you are organising a conference, seminar or workshop in the coming weeks, please consider both the regulations of the country where the event is planned and those of the countries where the participants are travelling from, as travel restrictions may apply, advice and directives differ from country to country. Please continue to adjust your policies and practices in response to new developments surrounding COVID-19.

We are monitoring regional updates and recommendations and will continue to keep you informed via email and social media. If you are seeking additional information on best practices for your museum please direct your queries to secretariat@caribbeanmuseums.com .

Best wishes from the MAC Board and staff,

Natalie Urquhart, MAC President
