Become a Member

An ANSM membership is a great way to connect with the museum community in Nova Scotia. ANSM serves as a champion on behalf of museums and educates Nova Scotians about the value of sharing our province’s vibrant cultural history. Becoming an ANSM member offers many opportunities for professional development and to become more involved in our community.

Some of the benefits of an ANSM membership are:

  • Learning event discounts (workshops, symposia, conferences)
  • Access to the Advisory Service
  • Networking with other museum professionals
  • Voting at the Annual General Meeting
  • A link to your museum’s website on our Members page
  • Eligibility to participate in the Cultural Federations of Nova Scotia benefits program

There are four types of ANSM memberships:

  • Museum Membership
  • Organization Membership
  • Individual Membership (includes student members at a discounted rate)
  • Honourary Lifetime Membership

Our membership year runs from June 1 to May 31. If you are interested in joining ANSM simply print and fill out a membership form (below) or purchase online using EventBee.
