IMTAL was founded in 1990. It became an Affiliate Group of the American Association of Museums (now known as the American Alliance of Museums
) in 1994, and combined with the Professional Interest Council (PIC) of AAM in 2002.
In 1999, IMTAL endorsed and supported the formation of IMTAL-Europe
, a UK-based sister organization with the same dedication to promoting theatre in museums all over Europe.
We're also happy to have a very active presence in the Southern Hemisphere with IMTAL/Asia-Pacific
