Increased number of visitors will raise economic and social growth. Cross border cooperation is needed as Palanga and Pavilosta shares the same shore of Baltic sea so naturally there is significant number of similarities between towns as it shares the same history as well as material culture. Kurzeme region in different periods had part of Lithuanian territories so some exhibits are very similar or even the same.That leads to common history of Lithuania and Latvia.

Project is innovative as there will be innovative interactive exhibition and more young people will be attracted to cultural life. There is no interactive museums in region so that might become as an inspiration for other museums to reach higher level of innovation.
