How Museums Benefit Society

Museums are institutions created in the public interest. They engage their visitors, foster deeper understanding and promote the enjoyment and sharing of authentic cultural and natural heritage.

Museums acquire, preserve, research, interpret and exhibit the tangible and intangible evidence of society and nature.

As educational institutions, museums provide a physical forum for critical inquiry and investigation.

The Association of Manitoba Museums acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory and the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the M├ętis Nation.
