Abstract

University museums are being considered as important units in the departments and faculties they belong, and during the last decade they have been discussed for their role in the 21 century regarding the scientific and educational role that their collection play for enhancing knowledge to the community of university students. The aim of this paper is to give an insight of the different tools that university museums of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA (Greece) have involved and adapted in order to make their museum visible and reflect how their achievements have turned them to be places of communication and inclusion based in their collections. Even though this University has several museums managed differently from each other and spread around its campus in different buildings, not all of them operate as open museums for casual visitors or tourist, but this hasn’t affected in the many efforts made by museum staff, leading and expanding the role of university museums beyond the traditional cliché “only for research purposes”.
