the principle of observing the behavior of visitors was created. An ob- servation grid based on methodologies of education sciences applied to museology was created. This observation method allows to determine how visitors interact in a natural way without direct intervention of the museum's mediators. The observation was made on the 1st Sunday of each month when the access to the museum is free and once in the morning and another in the afternoon. Opting for this day has to do with the fact that this exposure is primarily addressed to identi ed groups of non-visitors who enjoy precisely the fact that it is free to visit the mu- seum.
For this evaluation process it was determined that the visitors of this exhibition felt more attracted to  lms about how the instruments were done in the past, the interactivity of tablets and especially the inno- vative museographic solutions to engage the visitors with the objects.
From February 2016 until the end of August, more than 80 000 people visited this exhibition, so we consider it a big success.
12. Strong and Weak Points
The strongest point of this exhibition was the engagement with the visi- tors. Each visitor made his own experience on the mental construction of object interpretations. Another strong point was the way they interact with the exhibition. Most of the visitors took a lot of pictures of the ob- jects (the archaeological objects and the contemporary objects as well).
