Museums in CAMD
CAMD’s members manage cover 65 separate institutions which include state and national museums, social and natural history collections, science centres, heritage houses and outdoor museum sites. The collections they hold are broad, ranging from our earliest natural science specimens to cutting edge, modern design and technology.
Since 1967, CAMD has worked to provide the leaders of major museums with opportunities to:
- share information, ideas and data and consider collective priorities
- collaborate with other cultural institutions and museum organisations on mutually beneficial campaigns and projects
- inform and shape museum and cultural policy agendas in Australia and New Zealand
- represent the interests of members and their museums to Government and other stakeholders; and
- promote the social, educational, scientific, cultural and economic benefits of the wider museum sector to Government and the community.
