Experience and knowledge – museum professionals supporting public education edited by Dr. Ibolya Bereczki and Ilona Sághi, Hungarian Open Air Museum – Museum Education Centre, 2009

If we want museums to be open for understanding or influencing social processes in a positive way at the beginning of the 21st century, we need to be familiar with the present relationship of the museum sphere and public education. ‘We need to be aware if the present state of museum infrastructure is capable of adapting to the expectations of competence based learning or not… the aim of the research is to explore what kind of museum is needed in the 21st century and what competences are demanded for museum professionals’, writes Dr. Ibolya Bereczki in the introduction of the book.

Museum Management 1. edited by Dr. Ibolya Bereczki and Ilona Sághi, Hungarian Open Air Museum – Museum Education Centre, 2010

Knowledge and experience that has accumulated for the period of more than two hundred years of the history of museology gives us a strong base to maintain well-tried structural and organizational forms and contents almost without change. Yet we have to accept the fact that museums are rather like living tissues that cannot be detached from its social body and can live, develop only in symbiosis with society. Changes of our environment have always fundamentally influenced the present and future of museums.

Tricks of the Trade – From museum project simulation to case studies by Kinga Bagyó, Sarolta Pálfi, Annamária Szu and Petra Török, Hungarian Open Air Museum – Museum Education Centre, 2010

In the first decade of the 2000s Hungarian museum institutions faced a new challenge unknown up till then, namely the state funding constructions of the New Hungary Development Plan (NHDP) for the period 2007–2013. These financial support constructions have been the major source of development for this sphere of institutions. The grant proposals, the entire system of tendering and the whole process of realisation – starting from the time of the composition of the proposal up to the closing of the project – have induced extreme reactions from our institutions.

Museum Management 2. edited by Dr. Ibolya Bereczki and Ilona Sághi, Hungarian Open Air Museum – Museum Education Centre, 2011.

Changes of the first decade of the millennium have affected not only museums but the entire public collections sphere and elicited a need for internal changes. Museums have become more open and devoted even more attention to their visitors. They have started to use methods of lifelong learning and established services. Still, neither in higher education nor in any adult education institutes was there any opportunity for museum managers and colleagues aiming to become managers in the future to acquire theoretical and practical, museum specified
knowledge.
