BAYBURT - Anadolu Agency
Bayburt’s Baksı Museum is located 45 kilometers away from the city center.The Baksı Museum in the eastern Black Sea province of Bayburt’s Bayraktar (Baksı) village will celebrate its decennial with various events this year.
The founder of the museum, Professor Hüsamettin Koçan, said the most important feature of Baksı Museum was that it did not have limits.
He said they were planning to make a cinema project this year but they had to postpone the plan since it was costly.
“Instead of the cinema project, we will organize an exhibition called ‘Gray Ground.’ We bring together all artifacts in the depot to open the exhibition,” Koçan said.
He noted the museum would host a very important international event this year. “We have designed a project for the International Council of Museums (ICOM). It will organize a workshop here. The European and Asian museums also want to join this workshop. This workshop will be great for Bayburt and the region’s tourism. If we succeed in impressing these people here, we can get positive results in the international field,” he said.
Koçan said Communicating the Museum (CTM), which provides communication between the world’s most important museums, will organize a conference at the Baksı Museum through the Culture and Tourism Ministry.
“CTM proposed Baksı Museum to collaborate on this conference. The world’s leading museums will come to Baksı between Sept. 9 and 12,” he said.
The Baksı Museum, which is 45 kilometers from the city center, was awarded the Council of Europe Museum Prize for 2014 by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe’s (PACE) Committee on Culture, Science, Education and Media.
