In furtherance of the objectives of this act, the commissioner or, with his approval, the Director of the State Museum may enter into agreements providing for the cooperation and assistance of the department and the division with any public or nonprofit agency, foundation or organization engaging in some or all of the activities set forth in section 3 of this act. Such cooperation and assistance may include financial assistance, provided, however, that any financial assistance shall be only to the extent that appropriations or other available resources will permit.
If the department shall determine that the acquisition of any museum or museum activity is in the public interest it may enter into agreements for such purposes. Any agreements which would obligate the State or any of its agencies to assume financial responsibility for the operation or the acquisition of any museum or museum collection or other activities shall be approved in writing by the commissioner and the Governor.
