Our suggestion was to find out where we had things in common and, when we knew of each other what we were doing, we wouldn’t unknowingly block each other. Dr Carstensen recognised that the classic ethnographic open air museums are on another track than are. Even though several AEOM members (like in Enkhuizen [NL] and Bokrijk [BE]) use specific kinds of live , this is more widely in use in archaeological open-air museums. Of course, EXARC’s museums cannot exist without (re)constructions while at AEOM, the raisons d’etre are original buildings.
AEOM is a service club, existing since 1956, with membership by invitation only – individuals, not museums. Their Board counts seven people and their membership is about 50 people across Europe. They organise biannual conferences with themed workshops which get published to a wide audience of professionals.
AEOM is in a process of defining more closely who are in their circles and who should not. Therefore they see little options of cooperation.
