World Platform for


and community museums

Welcome to the DROPS International Platform for exchange and experience sharing.

"Drop by drop becomes a river"

Traduzione italiano

OUR goals

We aim at connecting all national Ecomuseum and Community Museum networks, existing or to be established, and all other heritage and landscape NGOs, in a virtual and interactive space.

Our purpose is the production of a multilingual documentary and a bibliographic pool of resources on ecomuseology and its best practices.


Why "Drops"? 

It is the metaphore used by Gerard Corsane at the 2016 ICOM General Conference.

This platform  resembles drops of water which join into rivers and, through rivers, meet the sea and reach the world.

“Network drop” can also indicate the hub of a computer network.
