Home Our NationHeritageCultural Heritage Legislation

Tanzania, like other countries in the world, is legally protecting cultural heritage. The legal protection of the country’s tangible cultural heritage is affected through the Antiquities Act of 1964 (Act No. 10 of 1964 Cap.550) that is principal legislation and the Antiquities (Amendment) Act, 1979 (Act No. 22 of 1979).

The 1964 Act repealed the Monuments Preservation Ordinance of 1937 and 1949 and enlarged the scope of the heritage, which needed to be conserved. The legislation offers general  protection to objects or structures, which are of archaeological, palaeontological, historical, architectural, artistic, ethnological or scientific interest. This section highlights some of the aspects of cultural heritage protected by various legislations.
