National Standards for Australian Museums and Galleries

Collecting organisations of all kinds are invited to use the National Standards framework as a resource.

Are you looking for a comprehensive list of resources on museum practice?

The National Standards for Australian Museums and Galleries contains links to many resources on best practice. Areas covered include:

* Managing the Museum
* Involving People
* Developing a Significant Collection

Version 1.5 of the National Standards for Australian Museum and Galleries has been released with updated resources and links. The release of this latest version continues the Taskforce's commitment to continually review the document so that it remains relevant to the needs of Australian museums and galleries.

To find out about the Standards Review Program operating in Qld, please contact Leisha Walker, Training and Professional Development on 07 3059 9743, email
