History artifacts can only be assessed by selected individuals who are capable of evaluating and appreciating the said items. Identifying a history artefact means identifying the previous generation's culture, history and civilisation. Therefore, the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports stressed on the need of collaboration and work partnership enhancement among the Museums Department, the Brunei History Centre, Universiti Brunei Darussalam, UBD as well as collectors to increase research and documentation of historical values. Yang Berhormat Pehin Datu Lailaraja Retired Major General Dato Paduka Seri Haji Awang Halbi bin Haji Mohamad Yusof hoped that such an initiative can be targeted to the youth as the continuing generation. This was stated during the launch of International Museum Day 2017 at the Royal Wharf art gallery in the capital.


According to Yang Berhormat Pehin, the country's citizens and residents should also appreciate history artefacts, and it is also a duty at various levels to preserve and search for items that can benefit the future generation. The celebration ran concurrently with the launching of a book published by the Museums Department titled "Mengenal dan Mewarna: Kraf tangan Brunei Kain Tenunan".


At the function, participants received certificate and souvenirs while the appreciation certificate was presented to sponsors and contributors for the year 2016. This year's celebration carried the theme "Muzium dan Cabaran Sejarah: Menyatakan yang Tidak Terungkap dalam Muzium", or Museums and Contested Histories: Saying the Unspeakable in Museums.


A KRAF exhibition was also held which was co-organised by the Museums Department, UBD and Creative Space Art Gallery and Studio. More than 30 artists were involved in the exhibition which focused on the values of art and culture based on the context of globalisation. It showcased contested histories between arts and handicrafts, traditional and modern as well as the young generation and senior citizens. The exhibition aimed to involve local art enthusiasts in celebrating the International Museum Day 2017 by providing the opportunity to display their respective arts.
