Association of Manitoba Museums

Museums Awareness Initiative

As the voice of our museum community, and in keeping with our dedication to promote excellence in preserving and presenting Manitoba’s heritage, the AMM has an initiative that raises the profile of Museums in Manitoba and increases heritage awareness of museums located throughout the province.

The Museums Awareness Initiative (M.A.I.) of the AMM recognizes what museums do to preserve, present, and promote heritage during the month of May and to celebrate Manitoba Day on May 12 and International Museums Day on May 18.

Does your museum participate in?

  • Manitoba Day Celebrations (on or near May 12)
  • Heritage Fair (partnerships or activities)
  • Free admission or reduced admission to the public on a special day
  • Special activities to promote International Museums Day (May 18).

Let us know, and we will help publicize your events through our newsletters, emails and social media.

The AMM also promotes museums during the month of May through targeted promotion in the media such as sponsored spots on Prairie Public Television (PBS).
