Ecomuseum concept


In the traditional museum, there are exhibits in the museum building. On the other hand, Ecomuseum is the concept to regard a certain area as a museum. We can also call it “open-sky museum”.



In Ecomuseum, the community members, on their own initiatives, preserve, conserve, present and utilize their inherited tangible and intangible heritages such as nature, culture and lifestyle in sustainable and scientific manners. In As-Salt, this Ecomuseum concept is utilized to show the tourists the attractiveness of As-Salt.
