The proposed National Sport Museum is one step closer to being established by the Government.

Minister with responsibility for Sports, Hon. Natalie Neita Headley, says a temporary location to house the facility has been identified, following visits to several proposed sites by the project’s technical team.

She further informed that a Curator has been identified “to assist with the development of the project.”

Mrs. Neita Headley was making her contribution to the 2014/15 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on June 24, under the theme: ‘Sport Policy made Sport Reality – Capitalising on our Sporting Successes’.

The Minister pointed out that the museum’s location is “critical’ as it “must be a commercially viable venture and a medium for collecting and storing artifacts.”

“We have taken into account the need for accessibility to the public… and identifying a location that fits the profile of the museum,” she added.

The facility’s development is being undertaken by the Capacity Building and Infrastructure Committee of the National Sports Council, chaired by well known Research Analyst, Don Anderson.
