    Abstract

    Museums have an important connection with history and with our past. They keep and help us interpret the natural and cultural heritage. They also contribute to the evaluation and understanding of the heritage. There is an open question, how can historical facts, which are located more than 2,000 years away move closer to young learners. The answer lies in the pedagogical programs of the museum. These programs allow active, empirical way of learning and experiential contact with cultural, historical and material heritage. Master’s thesis represents discussion of pedagogical role of the museum and chosen pedagogical programs of the City Museum of Ljubljana in learning about cultural and historical heritage of Emona in the fifth grade of primary school. In the theoretical part I present the main concepts for understanding my master thesis such as cultural and historical heritage, museum and educational role of the museum. What follows is an overview of the rich history of the city Emona, presentation of the City Museum of Ljubljana and its pedagogical programs for the fifth grade. In the didactic part, I prepared an overview of learning goals and suggested contents of the curriculum society for the fifth grade of primary school and I connected them with pedagogical programs of the museum. The research was carried out with a quantitative and qualitative research approach, in which I used a descriptive and non-experimental method. In the first part of the research, I evaluated chosen pedagogical programs of the museum with help of observational sheets, where I designed standards for guidance and level of activity of young learners, and a questionnaire for young learners in learning cultural and historical heritage of Emona for the fifth grade of primary school. Interview with the museum educator answers the question from a different point of view. In the second part of the research I gained, with the help of three different interviews, opinions about collaboration between museum and school in the project called Muzej v malem, from all three levels of learning in the museum, young learners’ opinions, museum educators’ opinion and teacher’s opinion.
