Code TA-5500.3000-150
Definition Institutions that acquire, preserve, research and exhibit permanent and/or traveling collections of artifacts which foster an understanding of the material and intellectual culture, traditions and experiences of people from a diversity of cultures. Cultural museums may focus on Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, Metis and other peoples native to North America; African Americans, Hispanic Americans and people from other countries who settled as immigrants; or ancient and modern representatives of other cultures as they lived and/or live in their own lands. Collections may include archival records, personal diaries, photographs, profiles of notable personages, tools, implements, furnishings, costumes, fine and folk art, musical instruments and other objects and memorabilia that help to interpret and understand the family, religious and political life of these groups and the contributions they made to the communities and times in which they lived.
