USI-NAM Military Museum Curators Course

The USI and National Army Museum (NAM) UK, collaborated to organise the first Military Museum Curators Course in New Delhi in October 2019. The three-day training programme, supported by the UK High Commission in India, was conducted by trainers from the Gurkha Museum and the National Army Museum UK. It aimed to acquaint curators and officers dealing with military heritage, with best practices in the field in order to enhance their displays, preserve their artefacts and devise educational and outreach programmes to optimise the impact of the museum in their charge. The course is the first among the list of activities planned under the British-Indian Military Heritage partnership signed between USI and NAM.
