With tourism growing worldwide every year, museums and visitor centres are increasingly important to help visitors understand the cultural and historical significance of World Heritage sites. This also includes zoos and aquariums, which increasingly play an important role in species conservation.
This issue of World Heritage will present the role of many of these centres and their contribution to visitors’ experiences, whether it’s revitalizing World Heritage site museums in Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam; the National Palace Museum of Mexico and its importance in the cultural history of UNESCO; the conservation, education and research roles of the Vienna Zoo; or Belgium’s Plantin-Moretus House-Workshops-Museum Complex, a printing plant and publishing house dating from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
