Begun in 1962, the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) is a professional member service organization for the children’s museum field.

ACM is the only organization representing museums and professionals dedicated to early childhood play, the starting point in the continuum of lifelong learning.

ACM strengthens children’s museums to be essential community assets by: establishing standards for professional practice; convening InterActivity conferences; collecting research and best practices; and initiating national and international partnerships with opportunities for local collaboration. ACM leadership initiatives include Good to Grow!, Diversity in Action and Playing for Keeps.

Advocating that children’s museums — which annually serve more than 31 million visitors — are a major force in the informal learning community is a priority for ACM and members.
