Museums Connect

At-a-Glance

Museums Connect (formerly known as Museums & Community Collaborations Abroad) is designed to strengthen connections between people in the United States and abroad through museum-based exchanges.

Museums Connect links U.S. and international museums by providing resources for these institutions to focus on local community engagement and increase cross-cultural understanding -- resulting in partnerships that reach beyond traditional exhibit-based exchanges.

The program is a partnership between the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the American Alliance of Museums.
