Associations of Friends of Museums

Worldwide, the World Federation of Friends of Museums (WFFM) encourages people to create associations of Friends of Museums and provides the means for exchanging information and experiences. In Brazil, this work is done by Feambra (Brazilian Federation of Friends of Museums), active member of WFFM and overseas representative of the National Associations of Friends. Besides assisting in the creation and strengthening of these organizations of Friends, Feambra promotes cultural tourism and takes actions to preserve the national heritage. Although little known in Brazil, associations that help museums to reach their goals is well rooted in the culture of several countries, including Australia, Canada, Spain, United States, France, England.
