Summary/Abstract: Museums have experienced a deep change. They have expanded their programs and missions far beyond the display and storage of valuable cultural objects. There is a meaningful tie between culture and tourism and in the last twenty years they appeare more and more as an opportunity for urban renewal. The end of 20th century witnessed what the New York Times described as „the broadest, grandest, most ambitious museum boom“ in history, and this continues. Spectacular museum buildings energize their host cities by attracting visitors from all over the world and re-qualify territories. City officials and architects are tend toward showpiece museums which become real cultural events at a local, national or international level.
