About Us

The Council of American Maritime Museums (CAMM) was founded in 1974 to bring together institutions working toward the preservation and interpretation of North America’s maritime heritage. We foster friendship and cooperation among member institutions. This friendship promotes research, exhibition, publication and mutual assistance among practitioners within the maritime heritage field.

A subgroup of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), CAMM acts as an authoritative voice on policy matters which impact on the preservation of maritime history. We promote appropriate legislation that supports maritime preservation and high ethical standards.
