Australian Federation of Friends of Museums
The Australian Federation of Friends of Museums (AFFM), is a national, not for profit organisation connecting museum, gallery and library supporters throughout Australia.
AFFM is here to provide support and communication channels between members groups, friends and volunteers within arts and cultural organisations.
We are unique in that our focus is on supporting the groups that are the backbone of our favourite museums, galleries and libraries.
Benefits of Membership are listed on the Membership page.
In the current economic climate, AFFM recognises the difficulties faced by all volunteer based Friends groups and will offer a 50% discount on all membership fees for 2021/2022 financial year (October 21 - September 22). Please follow the membership steps on the website to continue enjoying all benefits of membership.
