The American Alliance of Museums' Education Professional Network (EdCom) advances the purpose of museums as places of lifelong learning, serves as an advocate for diverse audiences and educators, and promotes professional standards and excellence in the practice of museum education.


Want to join EdCom?

EdCom is a Professional Network within the American Alliance of Museums (AAM). Please visit www.aam-us.org to become a member of AAM and EdCom, or to upgrade your current AAM membership to include EdCom membership as well. Professional network membership is now free with your AAM membership.

We're collecting data about exemplary museum education programs around the country for advocacy and other efforts. Help us out by telling us what's going on at your museum!


AAM is now the American Alliance of Museums. Learn more about what the new name means for the shared future of museums and our communities.


Did you miss EdCom's most recent virtual book club on Museums and the Pulse of the Future (pdf)? No worries, we kept a log. We'll be having another one soon as well. E-mail edcomweb [at] gmail [dot] com if you have suggestions for articles or papers you'd like to discuss.
