Abstract

This paper is part of the research project Communicating Science and Technology: A Proposal for the City of Medellin, developed by the Research Group on Science, Technology and Society –CTS– of the Instituto Tecnológico Metropolitano. This project presents a preliminary review of the way communication and science has taken place in science and technology museums from Greek times, through Renaissance, to modern times and also covering postmodern and coming future museums.This tour shows the transformations undergone by science and technology museums in their search for more efficient communication processes. In the same line, they also try to stop excluding general society and to gain spaces that ludicly benefit a closer relation between science and technology where interactivity plays an important role to understand science and technology and to buildattitudes and values that are expressed in the citizens’ opinionand participation.
