Started in 1962, the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) champions children's museums and together enrich the lives of children worldwide. With more than 470 members in 50 states and 19 countries, ACM is the world’s foremost professional society supporting and advocating on behalf of children’s museums, and those who work at and otherwise sustain them. We leverage the collective knowledge of children’s museums through convening, sharing, and dissemination.
In 2023, ACM launched a five-year strategic plan to guide the association forward. All our work in our strategic priorities will be evaluated through the two overarching lenses of DEAI and environmental resiliency and regeneration.
