The year 2018 did not yield any breakthrough amendments to the Act on Museums. Those adopted were essentially meant to either adjust or complement the existing acts, and were adopted as the consequence of the amendments to other laws. However, the Act on Organizing and Running Cultural Activity, which actually stands as the systemic reference, particularly when it comes to museums operating as cultural institutions, was amended in 2018 to a greater extent. The widest range of the above amendments related to the organizational aspects of the operation of Polish cultural institutions. Firstly, the option of establishing cultural institutions with their seat on the territory of Poland was introduced; this on the grounds of contracts concluded by ministers and managers of central government offices with the organizations active within the area of the protection of national heritage and established in compliance with foreign law (Amendment of 12 April 2018 to the Law on Organizing and Running Cultural Activity). Additionally, the provisions defining competition for the appointment of the director of a cultural institution in compliance with the Amendment of 6 December 2018 to the above Act were substantially extended. The adjusting character in this context can be seen in the amendment to Article 16.4.3 of the Act on Organizing and Running Cultural Activity resulting from the new provisions on the representative trade union organization in the Trade Unions Act, resulting from the Act’s amendment of 5 July 2018. The second scope of the discussed amendments include those of financial character. This can be said both of the amendment of 12 April 2018, related to designated fund and foreseeing allocating them for tasks under state patronage, as well as of the Amendments of 8 April 2017 to the Act on Organizing and Running Cultural Activity in relation to awarding state aid from Norway Funds and EEA. As far as amendments to the Act on Museums in 2018 are concerned, these were reduced to two of very limitedrange ones, so-called terminology amendments of 3 August 2018 within the framework of the regulations introducing the Act on Higher Education and Science, limited to the new phrasing of Articles 10.3.1 and 10.3.2 of the Act on Museums, these dealing currently with postgraduate students, and the amendment of 28 January 2018 consisting in incorporating new Par. 6b in the Act on Museums opening the option for the Medal of the “Guardian of National Memorial Sites”.
