An art museum is a building where works of art are distinguished, valued, collected, conserved, preserved, protected, promoted, inventoried, exhibited, showcased, interpreted, evaluated and judged. The word museum derives from the Greek ‘mouseion,’ meaning temple to the works of the Muses and the discipline of designing, organizing, curating and preparing exhibits, and directing museums is called museology.

In essence, a museum is primarily concerned with the work of art as a means of sovereign, unhindered and unadulterated communication with its visitors. It is an inestimable cultural resource, a heritage preservation, a nation branding and society building center that innately offers the public a rich physical and social environment in which to experience, engage and interact with authentic works of art from important epochs in history, indelible eras in time and eminent periods in culture.
