Museums in the information society are finding ways how to incorporate the technologies, the media and the modern presentation techniques into the exhibitions by designing interactive and collaborative activities and by online communication with the public. The article presents data from the quantitative questionnaire survey conducted in 2015 which was attended by 203 Czech museums. The hypothesis of the frequent utilisation of modern presentation techniques in exhibitions has not been confirmed. Not event in relation to museums which have been significantly modernised during 2005–2015. Only 27 % of the modernised museums utilise at least 4 types of the modern forms. The hypothesis which expected that majority of museums offer the accompanying activities has been confirmed. The hypothesis that Czech museums are lacking in regard to the use of new media in online communication has not been confirmed, however data show that there is a space for improvement. The implementation of the modern presentation techniques is dependent on the size of the museum that is defined by a number of employees. 65 % of all Czech museums have 1–10 employees and in these institutions the implementation is more difficult and is used only modestly.
This paper deals with museums as a key part of cultural and creative industries and their role in social and economic development. Taking into account the role of museums in the past and the current trends, their contribution is considered to be crucial. Cultural and creative industries are an intersection of art, technology, cultural heritage, innovation, creativity and mental and manual labour. The purpose of this paper is to reflect links between museums, creativity, innovation and culture in the changing economy.
The Book Report exhibition is an example of modern technologies serving the presentation of the book exhibits. The exhibition arranged for the 50th anniversary of the first competition for the Most Beautiful Czech Book of the Year occupied a special place in the context of book exhibitions more generally. It exceeded preconceived notions and was highly experimental in character. It consisted of three parts, related to each other thematically and chronologically: The Most Beautiful Czech Book of 2014, Fifty Years of the Most Beautiful Czech Book Competition and The Most Book. These parts corresponded to three chronological planes. These three planes linked together the historical perspective, the view of the current form of the book and a vision of future developments in the field. The exhibition used the most modern technologies and resources from the visual arts and at the same time the physical presence of the book as traditional paper media remains intact. The focal point of the exhibition was the process of digitisation of books, performed within the exhibition hall. The project has its own webpages that remain in existence after the exhibition had finished.

The new Treasury of the National Museum will present rare crafts-manship of precious stones and metals in connection with the natural form of these materials. The Treasury will be followed by a Numismatic Cabinet, which will introduce the history of money from Antiquity till today. The Treasury and the Numismatic Cabinet will be interconnected in a joint hall devoted to gold and silver and they will be thematically intertwined in the hallway with the presentation of production technologies. The Treasury is created in close cooperation within the National Museum – the Natural History Museum and the Historical Museum. The base line will consist of minerals from diamonds to quartz and organic matter, which will join together with goldsmiths and artisanal arts into a unique complex. The main goal of the new Numismatic Cabinet is the establishment of a numismatic exposition that will be both scholarly exact and intriguing at the same time, educating visitors of the development of payment methods from Antiquity until today in a comprehensible and attractive way. The chronological exposition will be divided into several basic thematic sequential units.
Modern technology affects the development of the humanities, including the most traditional of the disciplines such as classical archaeology. We are looking for an answer to the question of whether high-tech could completely replace the basic tools without which we would not even imagine archaeology. Could pencil and paper completely disappear from the trench? We tested the principles regarding paperless archaeology on the exemplary research of the deserted Castrum Novum Roman Colony located in central Italy. The colony was founded in the 3rd century BC and disappeared in the 5th century AD. The discovery of the city occurred in the 18th century when the Pope decided to support the first excavations. Especially unique findings of sculptures became a feature of the Vatican Museums. After that the city was again forgotten. Only in the second half of the 20th century, have we managed to re-locate Castrum Novum. This resulted in the need for modern systematic archaeological research. Currently an extraordinary collaboration is bringing interesting discoveries and new perspectives for the Italian, the French and the Czech archaeologists.
