Since several years UNESCO recommends to supplement and extend the application of standards and principles laid down in existing international instruments referring to the place of museums, and to their related roles and responsibilities. On the other hand, museums are increasingly linked to the research carried out on their collections and related contexts and themes. In this context, museums and sites are more and more the place where they meet scientific research and Heritage education, not being only a place for exhibitions. In this contemporary panorama, communication it is essential for the social role of the museums and for their reason for being. Museum’s communication is internal and external. Critical parts of internal communication are: 1) mediate the scientific language of the researchers with a language understandable to all, but not trivial; 2) make the visit to the museum and the site an educational experience; 3) give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the educational contents, including visitors with physical and intellectual disabilities. Critical parts of external communication are: 1) involving the local community; 2) to be present in the media channels clearly, periodically and attractively. We invite to submit proposals to discuss these issues about the archaeological prehistoric and proto-historic museums and sites, carrying studies case, future projects and other experiences.
