Published by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) since 1948, MUSEUM International is a major forum for the exchange of scientific and technical information concerning museums and cultural heritage. It provides a unique space which enables readers and contributors to partake of cultural diversity through heritage around the world. In a renewed editorial approach, it addresses issues relevant to cultural policies, ethics and practices on national and international levels. Museum International fosters exchanges of expertise in the context of interdisciplinary research (anthropology, archaeology, history and art history, sociology, philosophy, museology and economy), best practices for the safeguarding and protection of the cultural heritage, and political decision-making in a cultural environment undergoing deep-seated changes. The journal is published quarterly in five languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French and Spanish (e-journal).
Published by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Lavishly illustrated, each issue is a journey of discovery - with original articles on various sites from experts in the field - together with news items, analysis and a sharing of best practices on major topics. By subscribing to World Heritage, you will help spread the word about these important World Heritage sites and contribute to their safekeeping for future generations.
