Ammon News - The Jordan Museum, in collaboration with the Jordanian Museums Association, hosted a celebration at the Petra Museum in Wadi Musa, southern Jordan, on the occasion of International Museum Day.

The event, inaugurated by the Ministry of Culture under the theme "Quality of Life and Sustainability," brought together museum enthusiasts, experts, and local community members to recognize the significance of museums in preserving cultural heritage.

A debate session aimed at introducing a project named "Involving the Jordanian Youth Generation in Learning about Amman's Past and Its Multiculturalism" was held during the event. The project's goal was to engage young Jordanians in exploring Amman's rich history and diverse legacy, which resulted in a comprehensive guide for museum education for school children, giving an interactive and immersive learning experience.

Suleiman Ali Al-Farajat, the Chief Commissioner of the Petra Development and Tourism Region Authority (PDTRA), underscored the vital role museums play in nurturing national identity and fostering creative thinking among the youth.

International Museum Day, approved by the International Council of Museums, is celebrated worldwide on May 18 each year. It serves as a reminder of the invaluable role that museums play in safeguarding tangible and intangible cultural heritage.
