Abstract (in English)

Rural heritage is a complicated cultural knowledge. Considering the visitors who come, to the living heritage sites, spending their spare time and at the same time, to get a piece of new knowledge in a nostalgic context, the heritage exhibition is the ideal EDUTAINMENTAL deliverable that could transmit the rural heritage knowledge using the interactive thinking methodology. The former approach creates a kind of curiosity for the visitors guaranteeing the life-long learning process. Therefore, reviewing the cultural significance of intangible cultural heritage, especially the manifestations of the rural socio-cultural heritage practices, the research paper aims at presenting a new aspect musealization that contributes to sustaining the cultural heritage especially this kind of the material culture. The musealized spaces will contribute in particular to revive the cultural identity of the Egyptian rural communities; as well as will be spots to present, educate and safeguard the folklife.
