The National Gallery held an opening ceremony this weekend for colleagues visiting from museums across the Caribbean for a conference this week.
Councillor Roy McTaggart, said the government is adding the final touches to a policy which will help maintain Caymanian Heritage.
“Within the Ministry and the government we are about getting ready sometime before the end of this year to approve and release what is the first national policy upon preserving culture and our heritage in the Cayman Islands but that is going to be a huge step for us to finally get a policy,” Mr. McTaggart said.
Mr. McTaggart said the policy will be the first of its kind in protecting Caymanian artifacts.
The Ceremony was the 27th Annual General Meeting and Conference of the Museums Association of the Caribbean (MAC)
