Safeguarding Our History
Our National Museum is the home of a countless number of rare and priceless artefacts from ancient periods. The recent artefact controversy and mysterious theft have drawn attention to the treasures that have received little attention from the public and state. More importantly there are concerns about the efficiency of the security measures taken by the museum to safeguard these invaluable relics of the past.
