We here at Cork Public Museum are proud to be associated and affiliated with the following organisations

We are a national professional network of collections based designated cultural institutions that advocates and promotes the diverse archaeological and historical richness of our museums for the enjoyment and engagement of the communities we serve



Irish Museums Association




The Irish Museums Association is an all-island network for the Irish museum community. It aims to promote and support the museum sector through activities that highlight the value of our collections and the contribution of museums to our society as places of learning, conservation, research, and interpretation. 

Our goal is to inspire the people of Ireland to engage with the rich cultural collections that museums hold in trust: these are the record of our past, the touchpoint for our present, and our legacy for future generations.

The Museum Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI) was established by the Heritage Council to benchmark and promote professional standards in the care of collections and to recognise through accreditation the achievement of those standards within the Irish museum sector.



The International Council of Museums
