Referring to the activities of the museum during the pandemic, Hoj. Jalal Hosseini, the head of Astan Quds Razavi’s Libraries, Museums and Documents Organization stated, “This museum, in line with the international slogan of museums in 2020 “museums are alive” was appreciated by ICOM for communication with the public through cyberspace.”
Signing a MoU with centers such as ICOM, Iran’s Ministry of Cultural Heritage and exchanging draft agreements with major museums abroad, including Russian Armitage, Qatari Islamic Art, Berlin and the Louvre in France were among other achievements of the AQR museums in 2020.

He pointed to the knowledge courier plan as another activity of AQR Central Library in order to facilitate the provision of services to its audience adding that by subscribing, members in Mashhad can order books by phone or social media and receive them at home.
