How to make your museum future-proof?

Is the existence of museums in danger? Definitely not. But fact is that the increasing popularity of modern media is changing the way culture is consumed. In order to move away from the traditional passive approach and stay relevant to the demanding audiences of today and tomorrow, museums need to look into the potential of current social and technological (r)evolutions.


These are three trends to keep in mind if you want to future-proof your museum:

  • the use of technology to re-tell stories with an experience-driven approach
  • the allocation of new functions to old buildings and the transformation into hybrid spaces
  • the power of social media and a stronger focus targeted at the online community
