According to U Moe Min Thein, the Kachin State Social Affairs Minister, an extended exhibition hall will be added to the Kachin State Cultural Museum in Myitkyina Township. This extension will feature a small model representing the traditional Manaw dance of the Kachin people, along with displays showcasing the culture of various ethnic nationalities, accessible through touch-screen interfaces.
Currently, the museum exhibits the costumes, tools, and customs of six Kachin tribes and five Shan tribes. Within its eight exhibition halls and a library, visitors can explore both tangible and intangible cultural heritage. The new hall will employ modern technology to present cultural traditions in innovative ways.
Museum officials are collaborating with the Kachin Literature and Culture Association to acquire materials related to traditional dances.
Established on 6 November 1994, the museum is situated between Aungsan Road and Thakin Nat Pe Road. It houses displays of Kachin traditional costumes, looms, silverware, jewellery, utensils, musical instruments, weapons, and models of Kachin houses. — ASH/NT
