The International Council of Museums serves society and its development and is committed to guaranteeing the protection, the conservation and the transfer of cultural goods.


Thanks to international projects with partners like UNESCO, INTERPOL or the World Customs Organisation (WCO), ICOM carries out several missions such as fighting against illicit traffic in cultural goods, risk management, promotion of culture and knowledge and protection of tangible and intangible heritage.

ICOM relies on the network of experts and professionals that form the National and International Committees for these wide-ranging programmes. ICOM is the only international organisation that can quickly mobilise the most renowned museum specialists worldwide.
