The project Album was carried out in fall 2017 by three partner museums from the city of Zagreb and financed by the Ministry of Culture. It was initiated by Željka Sušić, a museum educator adviser from the Typhlological Museum in cooperation with the
Ethnographic Museum and the Technical Museum Nikola Tesla. The main goal of the project was to establish the museum as a space that contributes to improve the quality of life and the enjoyment of museum objects for people with Alzheimer’s disease. Another objective was to present the social potentials and values of the museum to a wider public. In addition, the project also intended to use the social networks for promoting and raising awareness about persons with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia as well as their social and cultural needs.
