Museums in Tanzania: History, Transformation, and Impact

April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Tanzania has a record of more than three million years of human history and diversity, including fossil remains, footprints, and stone toolkits of early humans and hominin ancestors, from sites such as Laetoli, Olduvai Gorge, and Peninj. The National Museum of Tanzania supports the preservation of the country’s rich natural and cultural diversity through scientific research, education, and public outreach programs. Audax Mabulla will discuss the history of the museum and the innovative policy changes it is implementing to promote an understanding of Tanzania’s heritage, while also contributing to building peace, unity, and democracy in the nation.
