Three museums in Sudan--Darfur Museum in Nyala, Sheikan Museum in El Obeid, Khalifa House in Omdurman--hold important collections showing living heritage artifacts as well as archaeological objects. This project, now entering its second phase, will improve site security and conservation standards of the three museums. In addition, traditional shade shelters for daytime and outdoor displays of living heritage will be constructed. Training sessions are also planned for local staff to expand their skills in running labs and conservation techniques.
