AbstractThis paper reviews the efforts of the municipality of Zaragoza to promote an innovative heritage education project. This project adds value to the archaeological ruins discovered a few years ago (Teatro Romano, Public Baths) and other urban spaces musealized (Forum Museum, Museo del Puerto Fluvial). Heritage education is based on a city tour that culminates in the splendid Museo Pablo Gargallo. In this proposal we are interested in the part relating to education in museums. But we also found important to have integrated different parts of the city in a real urban route. This route connects different places imbued with tradition, art, history and memory. To understand and analyze this reality we have relied on key methodological case studies, using interviews and surveys of the main groups involved: teachers, technical and cultural mediators. We have also observed numerous live group visits. Thanks to this formula (which includes several urban areas) is achieved increasing the participation of many groups, especially school visits and families.
