The Belarusian National History Museum and the Museum of the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan are set to exchange exhibition projects in 2016.
The exchange was discussed during a visit by Alma Sagyngali, Director of the Museum of the First President of Kazakhstan in Astana, to the Belarusian capital Minsk last week, during which both parties signed a cooperation agreement. According to this agreement, it is expected that next year the Belarusian museum will present an exhibition in Kazakhstan, and the Museum of the First President of Kazakhstan (a modern history museum) will bring an exhibition to Belarus.
The aim of the exchange is to highlight the importance of the preservation and popularisation of cultural heritage, as well as to strengthen scientific and cultural ties between the two countries.
The Belarusian National History Museum has expressed its intention to develop its cooperation with museums in other countries and bring public attention to the role of museums in international relations.
