A beautiful beginning of the year with the publication of an article. This is a motivation for me – to keep scribbling.

Abstract: This essay is to understand the significance of cultural heritage elements of a society and how those elements get preserved through cultural centres like Museums. A Museum also acquires, preserves and disseminates. The other various roles of museums are also discussed and analysed in this essay. Museums can create awareness among the people about their rich cultural heritage which subsequently results in the preservation of the society and the civilisation. Some basic preventive conservation awareness approaches at the individual level have also been taken into account. In other words, preservation of cultural heritage through the museum-like cultural centres, thereby converting such centres to centres for learning and enjoyment is the focus of this essay.
