Promotion means advancement. Museum promotion refers to progress of museums. If there are sound, well-planned policies, there will be optimization of utilization of available opportunities to ensure museum progress. Museum promotion is not a matter of luck. In my opinion, it is a matter of judicious management of resources. Even the ample funds received by a museum may not bring good results if they are not smartly managed. Or, even a team of skilled workers may remain unproductive if they are not well directed. Management of museum resources is a key to its promotion. It will be interesting to refer to some new policies in the present Indian context and which are proving successful. The contemporary environment is very helpful for advancement of museum profession in India. We are no more a closed society. In the past, we were complacent or self-satisfied with our museum movement. Being an ancient country with a very long history of civilization, also with vast geographical area and second highest population, as a nation we felt that we need not compare ourselves with the achievements of any other nation.
