Welcome to Network-Museums.com!

Your museum may be struggling with how to conserve an item or how to stage a re-enactment event or any one of the hundreds of issues that come up in the operation of a museum. Network Museums is the place to get the answers. It brings museum staff, volunteers and students together to solve your problems and provides additional resources to make your museum successful.

Network Museums has a Classified section where your museum can place an ad for free. Sell unwanted items, trade items or if you want to just get rid of something, you can give it away free to another museum. Have a job opening at your museum? Put it in the classified where museum professionals in the US and around the world can see it. Want to advertise your business to museums? Place a classified ad for only $10 per month.

The Network Museums Tips & Tricks section includes a variety of helpful hints for museums. Exhibit design ideas, marketing ideas and DIY projects designed to save you money and help your museum reach its best potential are continually posted to this section. You can also pass along to other museums an idea that has worked for you in the Tips & Tricks section.

The Network Museums Interviews section includes interviews with museum professionals and people involved in the museum field. In these interviews, they will share their insight and knowledge with you that you can not get anyplace else. Our first interview with Don Wildman, host of the Travel Channel's "Mysteries at the Museum," discussed his interest in museums, the impact of his show on museums and his personal involvement with the museum industry. You can submit your own question for these upcoming guests.

Trying to keep up with the latest that is going on in the museum world and quarterly association newsletters aren't cutting it? Network Museums has you covered with its News section. We continually search sources from around the world for articles to help your museum grow and keep track of events that may affect your museum. From holographic display cases to robotic tour guides, you will learn about it here.

Network Museums recognizes that state, regional and national associations are another way for museums to network together and share ideas and information. Our Associations section list associations in your area that you may want to connect with to grow your museum.
