AAYM began in 1962 with a small group of children's museum directors who decided it would be helpful for them to meet informally as a group during the American Association of Museum's (AAM) annual meeting. Michel Spock says, AAYM stayed informal for about a decade. We resisted turning it into a real organization. We didn't take minutes or have formal meetings. It was for directors - to discuss our common purpose and our problems and issues. Approximately ten children's museums were operating in the United States at this time. ACM strives to enhance the capacity and further the vision of children's museums in order to make them places for children and families where play leads to lifelong learning.

Description: Association of Children's Museums
The Association of Children's Museums is the professional service organization that endeavors to expand the capacity and further the vision of children's museums around the world. The association took its new direction seriously. The first issue of Hand to Hand, the quarterly journal of AAYM, was published in winter 1986/1987. A part-time AAYM director was hired to coordinate InterActivity, to produce Hand to Hand, and to offer other forms of technical assistance. Kate Bennett, executive director of The Rochester Museum and Science Center and AYM president from 1990-1992, remembers the late 1980s and early 1990s as a time of many important accomplishments.
