Supporting Museum Practice

This page brings together resources to support and promote the work of the school museums across Australia including the nearly thirty members in the ANME national network.

Understanding Museums is a site sponsored by the National Museum of Australia to promote museum practice and museology. This has numerous on-line publications discussing museum visitation and other issues.  Museums can join Museums Australia.

Assessing the significance of cultural heritage is a key challenge facing local museums.  An important resource for this assessment is the national framework known as Significance 2.0. found on this  Federal Government site.

Fortunately, good case studies of  museum practice are available through the work of museums such as Hall School Museum which has a rich website that  illustrates how they approach issues like significance, documentation and display.
