- PRESS RELEASE
The Sharjah Museums Department (SMD) welcomed a delegation of the Abu Dhabi Police Museum Committee for an exchange of expertise and information between the two entities regarding museums and the preservation of archeological collections.
The visit comes in line with the Abu Dhabi Police Museum's interest in SMD's exceptional facilities and expertise in the art of preserving historical artifacts, as well as being familiarised with SMD's human resources system.
The delegation visited the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization, the Sharjah Heritage Museum, Sharjah Aquarium, and the Sharjah Archaeology Museum.
Commenting on the visit, Aisha Deemas, Director of Executive Affairs at Sharjah Museums Department, said, "SMD is keen to develop meaningful ties with all museums and related associations in the country, to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field through discussions and the exchange of viewpoints, information and knowledge."
She added, "We received the Police Museum Committee, an affiliate of the Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters, in line with our commitment to share expertise regarding methods of collection care, museum management and particularly the development of new museums."
"We believe that cooperation and expertise-sharing can help enhance and consolidate efforts aimed at fostering cultural awareness in the best possible manner," Deemas went on to say.
The Police Museum Committee expressed their appreciation for SMD's role in highlighting the rich cultural and Islamic heritage of the Arab world through its various museums, especially the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation, which uses hi-tech environment control systems and state-of-the-art display methods.
The committee also lauded the dedicated and committed efforts of SMD's staff, which reflects and further consolidates Sharjah's leading role as the cultural hub of the region. In his remarks, Colonel Jamal Habash, chairman of the Police Museum Committee, said, "Museums are the real mirror of human civilisation as they chronicle the history of a nation and show the evolution of human intellect and culture. Undoubtedly, museums serve as a window through which we can glimpse our rich past, examine the present, and prepare for the future."
He went on to comment, "Museums around the world are a result of the realisation that preservation of history can orient young minds, and give direction to all. Countries around the world have established museums to help them shape knowledge-oriented societies and enhance cultural identity of the nation."
Colonel Habash expressed his profound gratitude and appreciation to the management and staff of Sharjah Museums Department, especially those working at the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation, for the warm welcome and the helpful exchange of ideas and views. He expressed his hope that these visits would continue to make the most of museums' expertise.
