Management of Museums within the Regional Ministry of Culture, Education and University Organization
The powers of the Regional Ministry of Culture, Education and University Organization in relation to museums of interest for Galicia are exercised through the Directorate General of Cultural Heritage, which itself depends on the General Secretariat of Culture. This body is responsible for the management and coordination of the Ministry’s museum-related activities and aims to ensure the conservation, care, promotion and dissemination of the movable heritage of Galicia, above all through these institutions.
The functions of the Sub-Directorate for the Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Assets include the technical management and coordination of the Galician Museums System, the management of the museums owned by the Regional Government and assigned to this Ministry (except for the Pedagogical Museum of Galicia), and those museums owned by the Spanish state whose management has been transferred to the Autonomous Community of Galicia.
The Museums Department, which is part of the aforementioned Sub- Directorate, is the administrative unit that coordinates all museum-related activities in the Autonomous Community of Galicia.
