 Summary:
 This paper deals with the theoretical consideration of issues that arise during the creative process of redesigning a historic building for new exhibition-educational purpose. Two questions regarding the new role of the historic building are addressed in this paper. In what proportion is the historic building, with its defined spatial concept, architectural layout and prominent character, a constraint? How does a historic building, in interacion with the layout of the displayed art works and objects, turn into „exhibit“ and how it contributes to expressiveness of the museum exhibition? Findings are drawn upon the experience and analysis of three individual approaches in designing a museum space in historic building, implemented in a relatively short period of time in the region of Vojvodina. On one hand, the paper points to the phenomenon of interdependence, and of connections and mutual influences of selected museological concepts and contemporary museological principles of presentation, narration and communication. On the other, it focuses on the level of reconstruction and other necessary interventions that „the historic builidng as an exhibiting scene“ should undergo.
