Australian Museums and Galleries Association Victoria (AMaGA Victoria) formerly Museums Australia (Victoria) supports the development of quality museums, collections care, knowledge, and specialised skills for museum work.

We support people from small and large museums in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.

Our services include professional development opportunities for paid staff, volunteers, independent contractors, and others who are interested in museums.


Enabling museums and their people to develop their capacity to inspire and engage their communities.


AMaGA Victoria promotes museums to all levels of government and the community, and fosters high standards in all aspects of museum and gallery management through research, policy formulation, publications, and training. AMaGA Victoria offers opportunities for advancement for individuals, and leadership in workplace and industry issues.

As the peak body for the Victorian museum and gallery industry, AMaGA Victoria aims to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas in ways which affirm the value of museums, stimulate debate about principles and standards, and inform and inspire staff, volunteers, and supporters.
