The Institute of Jamaica (IOJ) has implemented several measures aimed at promoting the island's museums, enabling easier access to, and encouraging greater appreciation of Jamaica's heritage.
These include opening museums to the public on Saturdays, to allow more people to view the large collections of artefacts and art treasures.
Executive Director of the IOJ, Anne Marie Bonner, said that members of the public can now visit the Institute and its museums on Saturdays between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The divisions that are opened are the National Museum Jamaica, the Natural History Museum of Jamaica, and the Jamaica Music Museum.
Current Exhibitions include: Taino, Rastafari, Uprsing: 1865 and its Afterlives (excellent), Curating Music: Building a National Collection and the National Art in School Exhibition.
