Event Description

Museums as year-round experience; challenges and possibilities

Attracting visitors to Nordic Museums in the cold season is challenging. Still this season offers unique possibilities experiencing new dimensions such as more space and peace, darkness and coldness. These qualities could be developed into programs and events that seem exotic and exclusive to foreign visitors during a season when travelling and accommodation is at its cheapest. Also winter-weekends means good opportunities offering special activities for families and other local visitors.

Though there are some obstacles to overcome. Open air museums face certain difficulties due to lack of warm locations. The infrastructure in low-season is another problem, since many service-points in smaller communities close down from autumn until spring. Looking outside the box, actively cooperating with partners in other sectors of society could mean more active museums wintertime. This in its turn creating new dynamic in the nearby society as well as contributing to social, economic and cultural development.


Contributions concerning these issues are welcome. Please share your good practices, learnt lessons, plans and visions by registering to the conference at the link no later than September 4th


The meeting starts with lunch around 13.00 the first day, September 18th and ends after the excursion around 13.30 the third day, September 20th

(Back-to-back with the Baltmus meeting The Annual Event 2017 and the European Cooperation Day is taking place in Mariehamn on 20-21 September )

You’ll find perfect information on how to get there and accommodation at the web-page of the European Annual Event 2017

To prepare for the conference and start to share, we’ll use the already existing Web-exhibition “Four seasons in the Baltic” to tell about each museum during all seasons. Please, feel free to add stories and pictures. Need technical support? Contact network-coordinator Ulrika Mebus

European Year of Cultural heritage 2018

Council and European Parliament have decided establishing a European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. 

Cultural heritage encompasses resources from the past in a variety of forms and aspects.

The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness of European history and values and to strengthen a sense of European identity. At the same time, it draws attention to the opportunities offered by our cultural heritage, but also to the challenges it faces. 

2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development

The United Nation has designated 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among public and private sector decision-makers and the public, while mobilizing all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change. The museums are very imoprtant actors in this respect!
