Although museum education was more extensively present in Croatian and foreign literature in the 1980s of the 20th century, significant changes have occurred in the last decade regarding the practice itself. Changes of social, cultural, economic and educational circumstances in their environment led museums to expand the spectrum and ways of providing their services, resulting in the creation of a new professional position – that of museum educator. For the purpose of this paper, two sources of information formed the basis of research. The first was Croatian and foreign literature in the field of education and education in culture and heritage institutions. The goal was to get an insight into the role of the museum as a place of education and the status of museum educators and their professional vocation. A survey was then carried out on a sample of 10 museums in Zagreb selected on the basis of the Zagreb Museums’ Annual Reports published in the website of the Museum Documentation Center. By analyzing the twelfth item in the Report entitled Educational Activity, data were obtained on the types, manner of implementation and the amount of organized educational activities of each examined museum individually in the period of 5 years (2012-2016), which resulted in mutual comparison. Results should be understood in the context of research constraints - uneven, unstructured and sometimes numerically unreadable data in the Report.
