The Traffic Museums Association is a globally unique peer network that creates opportunities for its member museums to revamp and develop their operations and to grow the network and increase their expertise. Our operations focus on networking, peer learning and joint projects that help us to respond to the changes taking place in the museum sector and to promote cross-border operations in the sector.
The Traffic Museums Association looks to the future and makes the museum sector’s responsibility visible. The association strongly believes that networking in the museum sector is important for it to be able to meet the challenges of the future. We work together to develop services and operating models that improve expertise and skills in museums. We share our expertise within the network as well as in the museum sector in general.
The Traffic Museums Association has promoted and enhanced the appreciation and impact of the cultural heritage of the transport and communications sectors amongst the public since 2004. The association’s ten independent member museums operate on eight sites in southern Finland. Five of the member museums are museums with national responsibility and five are specialised museums.
