Association of Manitoba Museums

Specialized Courses

These 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.

Want affordable, archival quality boxes?

We can put together a workshop on how to make your very own boxes. Contact the AMM office and let us know if you'd be interested in taking this course.

Take a look at a video that Jane Dalley and her assistant, Alex McPhie, put together on one of the "specialized" boxes they made on our Facebook page.
