The Architectural Heritage Department of Dubai Municipality has recently attained membership to the International Council of Museums (Icom).
Rashad Bukhash, Director of Architectural Heritage Department, said it offers Dubai Municipality assistance in museum science in areas such as updates on the latest developments in the field of museum designing and management.
He said this membership is a result of the concerted efforts of the Municipality in creating cooperation with international organisations for preserving the cultural heritage of the UAE.
Icom is an international organisation formed in 1946 in Paris under the Unesco with 151 member countries.
Its associates work in the field of design and management of museums across the world.
