In historical instances, Classical Greece or Historic Rome, there was already a want to protect and hoard objects from the previous . We might focus on the explanation that pushed the individuals of that point to protect sure " outdated " items. ego perhaps? Social recognition? Wealth? The actual fact is that the Museum was not identified both as an establishment or as a self-discipline. That idea of a museum didn't exist, however can we are saying that museology was already practiced?

A really trendy self-discipline

Completely not. The treasures of the elites, of the kings or of the monasteries didn't search the event and diffusion of cultural and scientific data or the conservation for future generations or the schooling of the individuals . It was extra of an ostentation, pure amassing. Ornament in wealthy homes that might solely be loved by a very small group of individuals. Each archeology and museology are very "trendy" disciplines which have tailored to the instances.

The trendy idea of a museum stems from the Enlightenment , when scientific data developed and huge scientific expeditions occurred. The necessity arises to protect data and Historic Heritage generally in a house the place it's potential to analyze and disseminate . In Spain, the Napoleonic invasion aroused (amongst many different issues) the curiosity of Spanish society in its Historic Heritage.

The nation suffered a fantastic looting of artworks because the starting of the Napoleonic invasion, which brought about the Spaniards to need to protect it for the cultural identification that the broad nationwide heritage represented. From then on, entities and buildings arose to deal with Spanish artworks and the primary museums started to appear with the purpose of conserving and having fun with the Heritage.


To outline what a museum is, nothing extra recurring than studying the definition supplied by the Spanish Historic Heritage Legislation.

They're everlasting establishments that purchase, protect, examine, talk and exhibit for functions of research, schooling and contemplation joint collections of historic, creative, scientific and technical worth or of any different cultural nature.

A definition, like all institutional definitions in any area, very demanding. In reality, I'm certain that if I take inventory of a number of the museums in my space primarily based on this definition, I'll discover that not all of the actions to which, by definition, a museum needs to be devoted, are carried out.

Absolutely if you're considering of a museum proper now, you think about it in a constructing filled with showcases distributed in quite a few rooms the place archaeological items, artworks, curious objects, and so on. are displayed. Nevertheless, the idea of a museum goes past the “storage room” property. The totally different sorts of archaeological websites, scientific facilities, botanical gardens, pure parks and a protracted etcetera might be thought-about as museums.


A museum is an area to protect, research, study and disseminate Heritage (and you'll accompany this idea with no matter identify you need: cultural, pure, scientific...). That's the reason we discover such various kinds of museums : artwork, archeology, ethnographic, science, and so on. As a result of finally it's any kind of Heritage uncovered, that you just need to maintain and present.

One of many predominant elements {that a} museum should adjust to is disseminating , since it's ineffective to have an immense heritage if, in the long run, it isn't communicated and serves to teach society. However to take action, the valued Heritage asset should first be investigated , guarantee its conservation and subsequently interpret its which means to be able to current it to the general public and be capable of clarify it. If the museum doesn't adjust to this aspect of educating Heritage, it's a museum that lacks a basic facet for its which means.

Briefly, it's about integrating Heritage into society and permitting individuals to take pleasure in it, perceive it and study from it . Because of this, I consider that the museum needs to be a way more interactive house than what we're used to. And I do not imply that each one museums have unimaginable 3D displays or that they've augmented actuality exhibitions (which is superb) however about turning the museum house into a spot for the change of data and motion
