AEOM - Open-Air Museums

Association of European Open-Air Museums

The Association of European Open-Air Museums is composed of directors and of senior staff members. The association's objectives are the exchange of scholarly, technical, practical and organisational experience in relation to open-air museums and the promotion of their activities. For this purpose, the association organises bi-annual conferences during which members may participate in excursions and in working sessions dedicated to specific themes.
