Museums & Exhibitions
The Museums and Exhibitions Members' Group represents the interests of museums and gallery professionals in the UK, and members who are interested in pursuing a career in a museum or gallery. We promote dialogues between academics and curators, and are advocates for art historical research in museums.
Want to know what's coming up? AAH members will receive regular e-updates, and non-members can sign up to our free mailing list.
