In addition, one cannot overlook the fact that most of our museums still rely on government funding for their maintenance. However, limited funding is insufficient to maintain the huge daily overheads. Many museums rely on the institutional system for a long time; they cannot attract visitors with their obsolete operating mode, rigid management, and old fashioned exhibits. Such museums, regarded as mere "achievement furnishings", cannot provide the public with cultural services; on the contrary, they require the taxpayers to bear the costs.
In order to change the difficult situation faced by museums, the relevant departments should take measures to encourage museums to seek for diversified financing channels and operational modes by adopting market principles, so as to enhance their economic strength and at the same time enrich the exhibition contents. In this way, more and more museums will ultimately be able to break through the encirclement, achieve sound development, and provide the public with better cultural services.
