The Traffic Museums Association is a network of Finnish museums that focus on the history of traffic, communications and technology.

 

The Association promotes the significance, appreciation and impact of the cultural heritage of transport and communications in society, the development of the industry and know-how, and internationalization. It also aims to ensure adequate funding for the tasks. The association operates in 8 locations and includes 10 independent member museums throughout Southern Finland. Of the member museums, five are national responsibility museums and five are major specialty museums in their respective fields.The association strongly believes in the results of established networked cooperation. The new museum policy program encourages museums to collaborate and network, for which Trafiik has more than 15 years of experience.

The association is a globally unique operating model for successful and long-term cooperation between museums. We develop museum services and operating models that support the growth of their expertise and expertise. We share our expertise both in the network and in the museum industry and increase the effectiveness of museums through networking.
