Visit to the museum contribute to maximizing the interest of the teachers and children in issues related to the cultural heritage and to the way of life of their ancestors,because children will come in contact with the past, they will provide information about the life in the past years of the region, where they live. The direct contact of the children with the monuments will help them to understand the relationship between them and the conditions of the era that gave birth to them and offers the potential to encourage children to participate in the educational process, to get to know their cultural inheritance, to cultivate multiple cognitive skills, emotional and psychomotor sector, to self-act.

Also they acquired new knowledge and information about other countries' curriculum, teaching methods, technology use and learning environment. The teacher's horizons extend to different teaching modes and different types of education systems.
