ABOUT US

The Museums Association of Namibia (MAN) is a Non-Governmental, community development focussed organisation (civil society) representing museums and heritage, institutions and practitioners throughout Namibia. As a representative body, it supports museums in various ways such as in the field of training, funding and the networking of professionals.

MAN receives an annual grant from the Namibian Government and has been tasked “. . . to facilitate the establishment of heritage institutions at the regional and local level and to support such institutions by providing guidance, assistance and expertise where necessary and possible”.

  2. The Museums Association of Namibia supports and encourages the establishment and development of museums throughout Namibia.
  3. The Museums Association of Namibia actively seeks to encourage links between museums and other partners to enhance their role as educational resources and tourist attractions.

  5. The Museums Association of Namibia is proactive to develop a heritage network in Namibia to encourage greater cooperation and communication between stakeholders in the heritage sector.
  6. The Museums Association of Namibia is involved in seeking the repatriation of cultural property held in museums overseas and seeks to prevent the illegal trade in cultural artefacts from Namibia.
  7. The Museums Association of Namibia actively participates in international bodies such as ICOM and AFRICOM to ensure that issues of concern to Namibia are raised on this platform.  We also seek to build cooperative links with our sister organizations in neighbouring countries.
