A museum helps people understand the world by using objects and ideas to interpret the past and present and explore the future. A museum preserves and researches collections, and makes objects and information accessible in actual and virtual environments. Museums are established in the public interest as permanent, not-for-profit organisations that contribute long-term value to communities - Museums Australia Constitution

The only restriction to Organisational Membership of AMaGA is that your organisation must not deal in cultural material for profit.
