The 1970’s created a new relation between museums and the society, most of all through the concept of ecomuseum. In the meantime, the society – the context in which museums exist - has changed considerably. While originally responding to the needs of the moment, with their concept of territory, heritage, identity and development, and (local) community as the basic pillar of the process, ecomuseums and the new museology movement anticipated many contemporary theoretical and practical discussions. In the meantime, traditional (classic) museums took over some of the experience from ecomuseums, while ecomuseums themselves evolved and created new forms of manifestation. The intention of this paper is to provide a critical insight into the development and innovations of ecomuseums and the new museology, and show the applicability and usability of this concept in today’s changed social circumstances.
