Ο ρόλος του µουσείου έχει εξελιχθεί από την αρχική του λειτουργία ως χώρος συλλογής και έκθεσης αντικειµένων τέχνης και ευρηµάτων φυσικής ιστορίας σε κάτι πολύ ευρύτερο: ένα ανοιχτό πανεπιστήµιο, ένα πολιτιστικό κέντρο, ένας χώρος κοινωνικών εκδηλώσεων, ένα µνηµείο πολιτικής και πολιτιστικής υπερηφάνειας.

Στο τρίτο ετήσιο συνέδριο πάνω στις πρακτικές διοίκησης των µουσείων, επιµελητές και διοικητικό προσωπικό µουσείων και πολιτιστικών οργανισµών, εκπαιδευτικοί και καλλιτέχνες συναντώνται για να συζητήσουν τις νέες εξελίξεις στον χώρο των εκπαιδευτικών προγραµµάτων στην Ευρώπη και στη Βόρειο Αµερική.
