Currently, humanity lives in a complicated world with increasing globalization, political and ethnic conflicts. Modern museums act as institutions which have a significant effect on the formation of a society and its ideology, family and moral values, dialogue of cultural traditions. Museums have to solve the problems of interaction of the people and the authorities, national and cultural organizations.
