This paper will offer an insight into education work done by Lativan museum, as well as analysis of a new method in Historic Envoirement Education – the use of so-called Time Travels. The author consider the way in which Time Travel can affect the development of a museum’s educational role. She analyses the testing of a method that was first used at a mus4eum I Tukums – the seven-step method which was developed by Ebbe Westergren. The method covers the selection of an historical place or venue, the analysis of historical sources and landscapes, the process of teacher education and training for student research leadership, the implementation of the educational programmes in the relevant historical environment and the comprehensive evaluation of what has been done. The Evaluation has been based on sociological methods, such as surveys, interviews, descriptive, analytical and proposal-based sections. The broad and detailed description of the comparatively mundane process of testing one of the methods is included here so as to familiarise museum workers with the experience of Tukums Museum. One hopes that this will encourage reads to take a new look at their own educational work and the opportunities which are available to improve that work on the basis of the new trends in the field of education.
