Protect the cultural heritage!

Museums are not places only for exhibitions. There are many important tasks that museums have, and one of them is preservation.

In recent years, people in Japan have experienced natural disasters rather frequently, and the museums more often engage in rescuing the cultural heritages in danger than they used to be.

Taking the rescue operations at the city museum of Rikuzen Takada as an example, the exhibition deals with the activities and the meanings of rescuing cultural heritages, and the visitors will also know that the preservation is accomplished by the citizens rather than by institutions.
