Welcome to, home of the International Institute for the Inclusive Museum (IIIM).

The first three years of the IIIM brought together a large number of clusters of research and capacity building institutions, arts, museums and heritage bodies across the world. Most of them actively engage on our social media channels, especially the Inclusive Museum Facebook page and Linkedin group.

The criteria for participation includes demonstrated commitment to the ICOM Cultural Diversity Charter (2010); UNESCO Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversity (2001); Millennium Development Goals (2000-2015) and the UN post 2015 Development Agenda and the associated Sustainable Development Goals.

With hubs all over the world, this platform enhances constructive engagement with several knowledge communities and promotes a state of the art online research, learning and teaching systems.
