Since 2014 Museum Education Center in Armenia joined Network of European Museum Organizations as a Associated Member thus becoming a part of network of museum professionals. This became possible with the support from one of the NEMO members from Italy Margherita Sani (Istituto Beni Culturali, Bologna).
Shortly after joining the NEMO Museum Education Center took part in the Training Course “Staff Matters” which was about personnel matters in museums in Amsterdam from 12 to 13 of March 2015.
This was 1st time that NEMO received delegation from Museum Community from Armenia.
NEMO ensures museums are an integral part of European life by promoting their work and value to policy makers and by providing museums with information, networking and opportunities for co-operation.
