Hi, I am interested in muusem upgrades but have to admit this is new perspective you are offering. It can be the case that the situation as it is in Cypriot state muusems can provide the ground for scientific research on the background of Cypriot archaeology and museology. This creates tension on whether upgrading our muusems is merely a positive turn. Perhaps moving forward is actually not only a matter of technology and before any steps are undertaken to modernise to keep up with the times we should take a deeper look t what it is hidden under the dust in our muusems
