(5/18/2012)

Of the 275 museums operating across Indonesia, the majority are considered unfit to serve as tourist attractions.

That’s the conclusion of a senior National tourism official as reported by Beritabali.com. I Gde Pitana, the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy’s Deputy Minister for Resource Development bemoans that most Indonesian museums are not tourist-friendly, uncapable of providing accurate information needed by tourist visitors.

This situation, according to Pitana, will not change until such a time as the current level of unprofessional management of these attractions is improved.

Adding to the woes of Indonesia’s museums is the low level of attention provincial governments brings to their operation. “Local governments are not yet interested in taking their museums into hand, viewing such institutions only as cost centers, not profit centers. One of the (chief) indicators for regents and mayors is how much any project will increase local revenues. But, increasing local government revenues via museums is difficult,” Pitana explained.

Pitana said the government is trying to increase visits to government museums by revitalizing the current range of museums. To date, 26 museums have been revitalized both in terms of management, physical structure and the use of technology.

The government is targeting that by 2014 the total number of revitalized museums will total 150.
