Ancient and historic sites, cultural objects, and forms of traditional cultural expression enrich our lives. They connect us to our origins and create unique opportunities for the future. Protecting the world’s cultural heritage makes societies stronger and more secure. Today, many cultural heritage sites and traditions are under threat. This is why the State Department actively works to protect and preserve these irreplaceable resources. Join us in honoring cultural heritage. Together we can celebrate the world’s cultural diversity and ensure that it is preserved for future generations.
