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 networking and is a way to become more involved in our museum community.

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.
