Europeans outnumbered Asians for most visits to Myanmar’s National Museum in Yangon this year according to the museum director.
Director Ngwe Tun Myint from National Museum in Yangon said: “The arrivals of Europeans are increased here in this year. The Japanese have already observed to the Museum while investing in Myanmar’s economic sector so also Thailand regularly makes observation here.”
Around 27,000 foreigners visited the National Museum last year and a total of 24,276 have visited up to September this year, according to the museums list of foreign arrivals.
“Myanmar became a famous because of transparency condition. And then, Myanmar will host 27th SEA Games and serve the ASEAN alternate Chairman in 2015. Due to the reasons, the number of European arrival is grown up in this year,” the director added.
The Museum’s entrance fees had been changed to Myanmar currency Ks 5000 for a foreigner instead of five U.S. dollars.
