Citizen Services Museums
The Subdirectorate General of State Museums promotes the establishment of communication and interchange channels with museum institutions and museum experts from other countries, as part of its international cooperation programme.
This cooperation is particularly strong in the Latin American field, but there are also relationships with various European countries and Africa. Encounters for museum professionals, held in countries such as Mexico, Chile, Brazil and Morocco, have become one of the essentials tool to strengthening mutual understanding in the museum sectors between the corresponding countries and for setting-up common projects.
The celebration in 2008 of the Latin American Year of Museums and European Intercultural Dialogue Year, as well as the launch of the Ibermuseos Program, are opening new opportunities for bilateral and multilateral cooperation in the area of museums.
