Meanings of times in the museum-school relationship

This paper reflects on how historical time is processed in the museum-school relationship. It points out the relevance of studies on memory, history and forgetfulness to qualify this discussion. The pedagogical relationship established with museums is understood as part of an educational process that does not end with the visits, but exceeds them. The text tries to comprehend the dynamics and formative dimension of this interaction in which the subjects´ creativity and protagonism seem to be determining factors.
