Museums are institutions that store and exhibit objects of cultural, scientific or artistic value.

When it comes to archaeology in Southeast Asia, museums are often national or state-owned institutions that hold the archaeological collections of the country. However, due to the effects of colonialism and also looting, many archaeological treasures from the region are sometimes held outside of the country.

Museum News Archive

News reports and information about museums and museums studies related to Southeast Asian and cultural heritage. The news reports indexed below usually link to external sites that were active at the time of posting; sometimes websites may be temporarily down or may have reorganised their underlying architecture or have even closed down – in these cases the links may not be available. Most of the news articles archived are in English, although when I am made aware of stories in this and other languages I try to index them.
