Membership

Museums Aotearoa is the independent professional association for the New Zealand museum sector. We provide leadership to raise the profile and performance of museums throughout the country. We are fully funded by members' fees, which means we work exclusively for our members.

Membership is open to institutions and individuals who subscribe to and act in accordance with our Code of Ethics. In becoming a member, you signal your commitment to the museum sector, its ethics and principles.

We keep members up to date with the latest news and developments occuring throughout the country's museum community. We also provide a number of special benefits and discounts.

Museums Aotearoa was established in 1998, through the merger of Museum Directors Federation (MDF) and Museums Association of Aotearoa New Zealand (MAANZ).
