In the current context, museums must expand their vision of the traditional museological model, which has historically endorsed the growth of physical collections and the importance of ownership and preservation in perpetuity. A complimentary and essential condition to this approach is a more expansive and holistic view of what a museum's responsibility is to a broad array of constituencies. This inclusive philosophy advocates for increased involvement of a wide variety of stakeholders in museum operations, including education, research, exhibitions, and curation as well as acquisitions. There are myriad creative, collaborative, and novel approaches that museums can adopt in this regard. Whether as part of a collection or on loan, antiquities and archaeological material are significant vehicles for public education. Museums must keep in mind that the residual impact of colonialism may unwittingly influence the display and interpretation of material culture, particularly items that hold cultural significance for present-day communities.
