Principle 5 of the Charter of Educating Cities affirms that “municipalities shall undertake to exercise their powers effectively in matters of education. No matter what the scope of these powers may be, they shall put forward a broad and integrated education policy, in order to include all the modalities of formal, non-formal and informal education and the different cultural manifestations, sources of information and paths of discovery of the reality of the city.”
Being social learning spaces for knowledge for citizenship, Museums are a key element on the learning strategy of Local Governments.
