The U.S. Ambassadors’ Fund for Cultural Preservation is supporting the Arts Council Mongolia’s (ACM) “Museum Preservation Training and Supplies” project co-jointly with the Arts Council Mongolia-U.S., the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation, and the Marrella Fund. The project aims to preserve Mongolia’s tangible heritage by providing museums with acid-free preservation supplies and building the capacity of museum experts on preventive conservation.
Two U.S. museum experts from the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture are conducting training on museum collection management and preventive conservation on September 7-11, 2015 in Arkhangai province and Ulaanbaatar, involving over 30 state and regional museums.
On September 10, at the training opening at the Zanabazar Museum of Fine Arts, Public Affairs Office at the U.S. Embassy Ulaanbaatar Mr. Richard Roberts kicked off the program along with the Burke Museum and ACM specialists.
