    This master thesis considers the theme of planning didactical workshops for permanent exhibition Moja Ljubljanica in Vrhnika. Workshops are planned for school groups of pupils from 4th to 6th grade. Theoretical part of the thesis presents advantages of experiential learning, use of this kind of learning in museums, a “hands on” principle, planning of experiential and didactical workshops, for which goals are found in Curriculums for Social sciences and History in the second triad but are also being carried out outside the school – in museums. We pointed out existing research and findings on this matter, we presented principles of experiential learning and examples of good practice. An overview of literature, concerning pile dwellers culture in the European area, was also done. We planned didactical workshops, performed them at an experimental exhibition stand Moja Ljubljanica and evaluated them. In the empirical part we used a questionnaire to find out how pupils, who were involved in workshops, teachers and professional workers evaluate quality of the workshops. For this research we used non-probability purposive sample, which included 89 students from 4th and 6th grade from two Slovenian primary schools (area of Ljubljansko barje), 5 primary education teachers or teachers for specific subjects, who teach in the second triad – 4th and 6th grade, and 5 professional workers/co-workers from the experimental exhibition stand Moja Ljubljanica. This was done using quantitative research. The research will significantly add to planning of didactical workshops for school groups at experimental exhibition stand Moja Ljubljanica and at the same time also enable the exchange of knowledge between different profiles (teachers of primary education, museum workers, curators, archaeologists). It also offers an insight into the possibility of cooperation between school – primary education teachers and professional workers (museum workers, curators, archaeologists) in museums.
