2024 Schedule at a glance

The 2024 AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo preliminary program is now available. The full program will be available in the coming weeks.

Use the schedule at a glance to begin planning your AAM 2024 experience. Below is some of what you can expect:

  • Interactive and hands-on programming and workshops designed to help you connect with your peers, dive deep into museums’ impact on health and well-being, and leave with tangible tools and tactics to bring back home.
  • Events and parties to celebrate being together and making the connections you need to thrive.
  • A MuseumExpo packed with exhibitors ready to show you the latest and greatest, content and poster presentations, and meet-up opportunities. Plus, we’re partnering with the Museum Store Association again this year for an incredible MuseumExpo experience.
  • NeighborHub meet-ups where you’ll be connecting with other museum people with the same job function or area of interest.
  • Free and reduced admission to area museums so you can experience all Baltimore has to offer.
  • Experiential workshops at Baltimore museums during pre- and post-conference days so you can see local museums in action (and have a great field trip)!

Please note the schedule at a glance is subject to change.
