Summary/Abstract: In all the complexity of the museum study, there is a slight border that deserves all the attention of the researchers: the one of the niche museums. This work starts from the idea according to which the museum becomes a symbol of cultural practice in the contemporary era. In addition to the successful museums that are being built and built in the city, there is a new tendency to transform some spaces into small museums. These, in full process of heritage building, can highlight a series of features and characteristics of a society. Although the main purpose of the museum is to bring the visitor inside, its social, cultural and economic development is not overlooked. It is known that a museum contributes not only to the development of the city's culture, but to the entire cultural spectrum. That is why, a museum, at present, is no longer just an institution that houses objects that belong to the patrimony, it becomes an institution where dialogue is permanently carried on. The purpose of a museum, regardless of its size and invoice, is the transmission of a message, whether it is philosophical, aesthetic, political, moral, historical or scientific.
