It was clear that there are various administrative practices need to be modified and should be reconsidered the external and internal design of the museum. Moreover, it was clear that the methods of display inside these museums don’t express the sense of art, and they make the visitor confused. Furthermore, the staff of these museums doesn't have sufficient experience and knowledge of the antiquities.
