Abstract: Straipsnyje aptariami radikalūs pastarųjų dešimtmečių muziejų sektoriaus pokyčiai, nulėmę muziejaus vaidmenį ir jo santykį su visuomene. Aptariant naujosios muzeologijos judėjimo idėjas bei pastarųjų dešimtmečių Vakarų socialinės politikos gaires, analizuojamos šių transformacijų priežastys ir pristatomos naujausios šiuolaikinio muziejaus koncepcijos bei Vakarų muziejų praktikoje įsitvirtinę bendradarbiavimo modeliai. Tekste pristatoma atvejo studija – paroda Kauno miesto muziejuje Kauno žydų bendruomenė istorijos šaltiniuose, – analizuojanti Kauno apskrities archyvo, Kauno miesto muziejaus ir Kauno žydų religinės bendruomenės bendradarbiavimo pastangas.
