International Congress of Maritime Museums

Quick Reference


the international organization which represents maritime museums worldwide. It was established at its first meeting, at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, in 1972 and now provides standards and guidelines for marine archaeology and ship preservation, nurtures maritime museums and maritime preservation activities on an international scale, and is developing strategies to ensure long-term public awareness and appreciation of the significance of maritime preservation. There is no space in this book to cover the world's major maritime museums, but the ICMM website—www.icmmonline.org—lists all its members from 35 countries.

Subjects: Maritime History.
