One of the priorities of Museum Education Center is the development of methodological handbooks on museum education. Taking into consideration this important issue Museum Education Center initiated a development of a handbook which we called “Education in Museums” in mid of 2015. Two specialists Alvard Grigoryan (Lecturer, Dept. of Museology Armenian State Pedagogical University) and Astghik Marabyan (Associate Director of Public programs in Cafesjian Center for the Arts) were assigned to collect the information based on Armenian practices.

Finally, on 2nd of April 2016 Museum Education Center officially represented  book to museum specialists as well as to wider audience.

Presentation took place in Aram Khachaturian Museum.
