Exhibition and Research Unit

Exhibition and research are mediums that connect museum institutions with society and play crucial part in maintaining, collecting, and disseminating knowledge about the country's historical, cultural and natural heritage. These exhibitions provide channels to communicate with visitors to convey information, ideas, and emotions related to the material evidence of humans and their environment, with the help of visual methods and fascinating techniques.

  • Set the standards of exhibitions at the National Museum according to the benchmark of museum exhibition methods and techniques;
  • Plan, design, and implement themed temporary exhibitions at the National Museum periodically throughout the year;
  • Carry out historical, cultural, exhibition and collection research activities at the National Museum, and;
