Museum Week: Rethinking the cultural spaces

On the 13th of November, the representatives of “Armenian Association of Professional Tourist Guides” participated in a roundtable discussion dedicated to the more fruitful and smoother collaboration between the museum and tourism sectors. The participants discussed obstacles and challenges, as well as constructive solutions. The discussion was held within the frames of MUSEUM WEEK: RETHINKING THE CULTURAL SPACES project organized by ICOM National Committee of Armenian Museums and Association of Museum Workers and Friends in cooperation with AGBU. The initiative also provided a platform for the tourism and museum sectors to come together and discuss the possibilities of integrating museums into touristic itineraries. The resulting Recommendation Document from the roundtable session will be shared post-event with all participants by the organizers as a working tool for implementing and bringing the discussed ideas to life.
