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.

This page contains some recommended books, an image gallery and archive of news stories related to museums in Southeast Asia. You may also wish to check out the Virtual Archaeology page where you can visit several archaeological collections online, and also the Online Lecture Library, and recent academic papers for more up-to-date research.

Southeast Asian Museums in the News

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.
