Summary of the subject: Research in the museum is aimed at creating optimal and effective conditions for the process of selection of museum objects, their study, preservation and exhibition. In the process of this activity there is a comprehensive study of both the museum object and the relationship of the museum object with the original environment of its existence, its place in the museum, as well as the peculiarities of its relationship with the visitor. Research activities in the museum and the field of monument protection take place in two interrelated areas: 1. branch research, which in its content coincides with research in other scientific institutions. In these studies, museum objects are studied in terms of the new knowledge they provide to a particular field of knowledge; 2. museum studies aimed at gaining new knowledge of the theory and methodology of collecting, preserving, processing, exhibiting and other uses of museum objects. The acquired new knowledge leads to scientific evaluation of museum collections, supplementation of existing ones, compilation of special documentation, scientifically organized exposition and printing of catalogs and publications.
