AbstractPublic educational and cultural programs and exhibits interpretation are very important issues in Museum studies and in Museum practices. There are many museums engaged in developing and presenting in their settings learning and interpretation programs and activities using tools imported from drama, music and dance to increase attraction and holding power. The strategy adopted by the Zoological Museum of the University of Coimbra, when it re-opened to the public in the year 2000, took into account some assertions from museum and theatre studies, in order to improve educational and cultural shaping and understanding of the objects, ideas and values related “The Ancient Natural History Cabinet” which is at the origin of this Museum. The evaluation of this live history communication experience showed us that drama could be a powerful and popular mediating exhibit interpretation tool. These findings motivated us to produce other drama based activities with different educational objectives and goals. Some were designed to emphasize the Museum objects and settings; others were thematic activities of annual educational program. The evaluation studies of those interpretation /communication practices can strengthen the broader viewpoint about the benefits of the articulation Museum/ Theatre within the context of programming and organizing public educational and cultural activities.
