Once in a while there will be good news from the Ministry of Culture. 

No, the Ministry of Conservatism does not betray its own spirit by catching up with the rest of the world. But the public needs to give it credit for allotting 900 million baht to improving cultural sites and museums across the country.

Part of the budget will be used to improve the database of cultural sites in Thailand. So forget about bland text printed or written on walls (or so we hope). Cultural aficionados, the ministry says, will soon be able to swipe their smartphones to obtain digital information and multimedia from QR codes displayed near the artefacts and art objects.
