Muscat, The Cultural Club will hold a seminar

tomorrow (Tuesday) entitled “Experiences of Oman Sustainable

Culture: Oman Private Museums” at the National Museum. The

their role in preserving the cultural heritage of the Sultanate, its active

contribution in spreading knowledge and activating the cultural and

of parents and grandparents.

This seminar will discuss a range of topics that include

highlighting the idea and the emergence of private museums

participating in the event, to learn about their experience on how to

employ the concept of sustainable Omani culture through cultural

investment, and identifying the most important challenges facing the

museum work in Oman, in addition to dealing with many topics relevant

to the Omani private museums.

The seminar will be attended by Omani private museums,

A’Sharqiyah, Beit Al Zubair Museum in the Governorate of Muscat,

The seminar comes as part of a series of seminars organised by

the Cultural Club within its current cultural season. It also comes as

part of the Omani Culture Experiences Programme, which aims to

highlight the concept of cultural investment in the Sultanate and the

importance of adopting this concept due to the Sultanate’s rich ancient

culture and heritage, which will be highlighted in the discussions that
