Strategic Plan

The Association of Nova Scotia Museums (ANSM) is a registered non-profit organisation. Originally established in 1976 as the Federation of Museums, Heritage and Historical Societies, the name was changed to Federation of Nova Scotia Heritage in 1982. In 2007, to underscore the organisation’s refined focus on the province’s museum sector, the organisation assumed its current name – the Association of Nova Scotia Museums.

Cake Policy

The Association of Nova Scotia Museums is well known for its detailed consideration towards the acquisition, consumption, and enjoyment of cake. The ANSM Cake Policy can be found here, in full, for other organisations to peruse and hopefully duplicate.
