The inclusion of museums, galleries and cultural and natural heritage in school curricula and the high number of school visits to heritage institutions prove that museum pedagogy has a very important place in educational practise. The same cannot be said for educational theory, as there is a lack of research in the field of museums and education. Museum pedagogy is an interdisciplinary science that combines multiple theoretical and methodological approaches.

The international contributions in the thematic issue represent an important scientific contribution not only in the field of museum pedagogy, but also in the field of general education. This is constantly influenced by social change, so that, as the researchers emphasise, it is important to constantly investigate, both on large, representative samples and on smaller samples or individual cases.
