The issue of keeping and presentation of live animals in agricultural and open-air museum has always been important, however, so far largely underestimated. The Szreniawa Conference on live animals is the first voice in the field of not only Polish but also international agricultural museology. The topic was consulted with representatives of natural science and technology universities. The need for exchanging experience in this area was proved by the participation of museum professionals from several European countries, as well as from Canada and the USA. 17 papers discuss theoretical, practical and economic aspects of the presence of live animals in museum sites.
