Last year, the Museum of Lukut received 45,000 tourists, and this year, while the country still faces the COVID-19 pandemic, it is aiming more tourists.
Peterson Augustine, Head of the Lukut Museum, said that from January to August,19,673 tourists were drawn to the museum. He hoped that a range of events and exhibits including preserved animal exhibitions would help achieve the objective.
"This museum exhibits 200 artefacts such as the collection of Raja Juma'at's personal belongings and weapons used in the early 19th century as well as a gallery that has several segments that display the history of Lukut and the culture of Negeri Sembilan," he told Bernama at the closing of the 'Voluntourism Our Cultural Heritage, Our Identity' programme here.
The one-day programme was attended by Noorazman Othman, Deputy Secretary-General of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
In the meantime, a total of 231 participants took part in the programme 'Voluntourism, Our Cultural Heritage, Our Identity,' which aims at raising public awareness of the country's history, particularly of the younger generation.
