Summary/Abstract: The Ethnographic Museum was founded in Zagreb in 1919. For a century more than 85,000 items from all over Croatia, as well as from the neighbouring European countries and the non-European cultures have been collected. The museum is a space for learning, personal growth and cultural exchange. In this paper, we present and discuss how to interpret museum objects in various educational programs for different groups of visitors and users based on a collection of non-European cultures. In a contemporary social and political context, it is very important to raise awareness about cultural diversity, exchange and tolerance in particular with a young audience.
