Cabinet Approves Law on Establishment of Private Museums

 

29 July 2005

 

 

On Wednesday, the cabinet approved a bylaw on the establishment of private museums in Iran.

 

Private collectors will now be able to apply to the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (CHTO) for licenses to establish private museums.

 

“In order to maintain the cooperation of the private sector, the CHTO will be allowed to issue licenses for the establishment of private museums, institutes involved in cultural heritage activities, workshops for renovating artifacts, and traditional art workshops,” part of Article 114 of the law reads.

 

The serious problems of illegal excavations and smuggling of ancient artifacts were also discussed during the cabinet session.

 

Most experts believe that private collectors have done a great service by collecting ancient Iranian artifacts and preventing the items from being taken out of the country.

 

An exhibition of collections of private collectors was held at the National Museum of Iran during Cultural Heritage Week (May 18-24).
