Citizen science is lately increasing in popularity as a new method of engagement of
the cultural institutions with the general public. It allows unprofessional researchers to
conduct activities which help research work coordinated by academics.
This paper introduces the domain of citizen science and explores its use by cultural
institutions. Based on the outcome of user studies within the Civic Epistemologies project it
provides evidence on the need to offer educational activities for the staff of cultural
institutions, in particular in the areas of communication with citizen organisations and
organising specialised events.
