The project proposals:
(An environment dedicated to the Sector of Educational Programs)
The education is one of the key activities of museums, along with the preservation, research and presentation of museum objects. Museums, which have gathered the civilization and experience of mankind for centuries, together with universities, scientific and research institutions, represent valuable sources of education. As a unique intermediary between the historic object and the cultural heritage, museums offer unlimited opportunities in the field of education.
The educational programs are an important element for the recognition of our culture. The museum reflects quality, professionalism and passion on others; it aims to raise people's awareness to visit it. The didactic programs offered to different age groups are conceived as a useful opportunity for museum recognition, works and preservation.
The project aims at:
  1. Creating an electronic magazine (database), where all the information for each object in the museum will be categorized.
  2. Creating an electronic magazine (database), where all information for each sector of the museum will be categorized. In this way each sector will interact independently with each other.
  3. Creating a program that will be preinstalled on an electronic device that will serve as a Mobile Interactive Guide (MIG).
  4. Creating a web application, this will be part of the Museum’s website.
  5. Creating of a smartphone applications where visitors will be able to consult the reduced information regarding museum objects.
The construction of this infrastructure enables the centralization of all information in a database, which will supply all technological interfaces with information. Through PCs and smartphones, the visitors can, wherever they are, access general information about the museum and any objects. The information can be used in different languages.
Through this project, a wider audience is reached, offering more access to history and cultural heritage. We aim to create an interactive community among experts, curators and public. The extensive information for visitors in several languages is offered. The visit at the museum will be more attractive, as well as adding essential services to the public and museum visitors.

The profile of partner organizations should aim at promoting the local and foreign public’s awareness and appreciation of the history. These organizations should also attempt to encourage a productive discussion among all the citizens about the past, pres­ent and future of their country. To this end, the partner organizations should preserve and consider extensive material and non-material evidence of the historical and cultural heritage of a country. These organizations should also have experiences through activities that support their vision and mission.
The National Historical Museum’s project proposals not only raise the awareness of Albanian cultural heritage, but also have an effect that will last in time and will make sustainable results beyond the end of the project.
