Culture and Fine Arts Minister Phoeung Sakona is appealing to young Cambodians to visit museums in the Kingdom to understand its culture and history after discovering that the majority of museum-goers last year were foreigners.

Ms Sakona held an annual meeting yesterday and said that according to a ministry report on museum-goers last year, 67 percent of visitors to national and cultural museums across the Kingdom were foreigners, noting similar figures for Tuol Sleng and Choeung Ek at 88 percent and 79 percent, respectively.

She said museums display records of what ancestors over the past few generations left behind, adding that this generation must protect, understand and learn their nation’s history.
