We at the Museums Council of New York City believe that museums and cultural institutions are critical forces in our world. They reflect who we are. They celebrate creativity and help us see a different future. They bring communities together. And we’re proud to be a part of that world.
When our organization was created in 1939, we had 41 member museums. Today, we are 112 NYC-based organizations and thousands of museum professionals, like you. We work at botanical gardens, libraries, zoos, aquariums, museums, and historic sites. If you work for one of our member institutions, you are a member of the Museums Council!
Attend one of our meetings. They include visits (virtually and IRL) to a member institution to get an insider’s look at an exhibition or current offering. We’re especially proud of the many perspectives and wide expertise our members bring to the table. From executive directors, curatorial and collections management staff to educators, development and visitor experiences staff, and everyone in between, you and all of our members represent the depth and breadth of our field. Our meetings also give you a chance to make connections and broaden your own network and knowledge.
We can’t wait to meet you.
