Local cultural museums are renovated historic buildings that now serve as venues for preserving, showcasing and sharing the region’s unique cultural heritage.

Policies & Initiatives

Supervision of the Local Cultural Museums Project falls under the Ministry’s Department of Cultural Resources, whose top priorities include:

  • Preserving local buildings of historic importance.
  • Advocating for sustainable management of cultural assets.
  • Encouraging community participation.
  • Redistributing resources among cities and the countryside.

The four stages of the Local Cultural Museums Project are:

  • To transform local cultural museums into multi-functional art venues. 
  • To create a cultural living zone surrounding the local museum that will enable cultural exchanges and bolster living standards.
