Association of Manitoba Museums

Specialized Courses

Specialized Courses exist to meet an expressed need from our member museums. Sometimes we develop the course ourselves with the help of our instructors, or we bring the course in from another organization.

If your museum is interested in taking one of these courses please contact the AMM office. We will try our best to schedule the course if there is enough interest.
