The role of the museum in modern society

Museums are places where we encounter history and art. They are like time capsules, containing amazing stories and heritage of our ancestors. When we look into the past by visiting exhibitions and expositions, we better understand the present. Each new generation begins its journey by mastering the spiritual and material wealth of society and undergoes social and cultural adaptation to the modern world. Museums can make a significant contribution to improving the quality of life of all segments of the population, ensuring continuity and continuity in the development of culture.


It is especially important for the public to instill in the younger generation a sense of love for the Motherland and respect for its history. The museum is one of the main links in the patriotic education of youth. A museum is a repository of the past, a place where they will tell you about history and secrets, forgotten events and little-known facts. In the museum you can always be surprised by works of art and get aesthetic pleasure from contemplating the paintings of famous painters.

The city of Karaganda is a large industrial and administrative center of Kazakhstan. They say Karaganda is a coal city. After all, it was coal that gave impetus to its birth. However, now Karaganda has turned from a city of miners into a city of mechanical engineers, chemists, builders, students, and scientists. Karaganda has always been a city of science and education. And today our youth lives up to our hopes.

We can be proud of the change that in the third millennium will make our city the most beautiful city on the map of Kazakhstan. Karaganda Technical University named after Abylkas Saginov is one of the leading technical universities in the country and its entire history is connected with the formation and development of the city; it is not without reason that it is called the forge of engineering personnel.
