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:

The four stages of the Local Cultural Museums Project are:
