Tomorrow’s Museum: Designing Engaging Experiences

Sunday, March 13
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Next Stage
531 E 4th St


Until recently, museums – especially art museums – have been slow to experiment with digital technology to create more immersive, memorable, and collaborative experiences for their visitors. In this session, we’ll explore some recent success stories (and failures) that feature high-tech/low-tech exhibits and activities, re-imagining how museum-goers interact with collections and with their fellow visitors. Designers of the new interactive experience at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum will share their perspective on how the very best interactive experiences engage, educate and inspire us. Our conversation will span museums across the globe.
