    After the collapse of Soviet Union significant and radical changes were made in the whole Post-Soviet space, what mainly was faced on the transformation into the independent countries status and into the market economy development.
    All the radical changes connected to this or that sphere, was critically expressed in the Cultural heritage and especially in the Museum field development. 
    Development of museum field in some countries of East Europe was transformed on to the new stages and was equalized to the modern international standards, but the rest East European countries and Soviet Union countries museums have still various types of actual problems.
