This paper discusses the contribution of the  Education Department of the Museum of Archeology and Ethnology of the University of Sao Paulo to theprofessional development of students in museology and related areas. For decades, the institution has impacted professionals through education, research, and extension programs. University museums, in  this perspective, play a crucial role in deepening the university’s ties with local and regional communities, especially through education programs aimed at the general public. As more distinct portions of the population have had access to higher education in recent years, museums can be a privileged domain for welcoming social differences and incorporating them into the realm of science and museology.
