Museums of the Future

Mar 11, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Are museums meant to become theme parks for knowledge and inspiration? How can these cabinets of curiosities, connect to an audience that looks more and more for immersion and adventure? How can our physical collections come to life in a digital world?

Join the innovation teams from the American Museum of Natural History and the New Museum for an open conversation on the future of the museum experience. Participate in the discussion and help define the future of content. Explore the overlay of architecture and digital layers. Further the debate on the role of constraints as forces for innovation and try demos from our institutions, experimenting with the future of the museum experience.
