Museum Education Roundtable (MER) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the role of museums and other cultural institutions as primary resources for life-long learning. MER provides leadership in professional development for a broad and diverse audience of museum practitioners and educators ultimately to benefit communities of learners. To do this we:

  • Foster professionalism among peers and others committed to excellence in lifelong learning.
  • Encourage leadership, scholarship, and research in museum-based learning.
  • Advocate the inclusion and application of museum-based learning in the general education arena.
