The Future of Museums: A Study Report

The Future of Museums: A Study Report | Agnes Water Adventures through time | Scoop.it

This report highlights a number of key trends that will have a significant impact on the user experience and design of future collections and museums.


Via Robin Good
Jennifer Ryan's insight:

This is right up my alley. Looking forward to reading about trends and impacts.

Robin Good's curator insight, November 7, 2013 3:58 PM



Picture these scenarios:
 

  • The Victoria & Albert Museum, its collections depleted by massive repatriation, becomes a travel & tourism guide and international affairs ambassador in an increasingly globalized community
     
  • The Freud Museum, in the spirit of its namesake, becomes a provider of mental retreat and therapy (I wonder if the docents will be licensed psychoanalysis?)

These, according to the 40-page report Museums in a Digital Age” from Arups, may actually be some of the likely new profiles of prestigious museums 25 years from now.  


The report projects that:


"...future museums will see personalised content, new levels of sustainability and a visitor experience extended beyond present expectations of time and space."


  • A rising desire among audiences to shape their own cultural experiences (“Collaborative Curation”)
     
  • The opportunity for museum to become “curators of experiences” that extend beyond the boundaries of traditional exhibits or programs, or beyond the walls of the museum itself.

The idea of "collaborative curation" of museum collections by the actual users-visitors, is particularly fascinating. 

"Just as current consumer trends shift towards collaborative consumption, in the future, museums may employ new patterns of collaborative curation, allowing for individually curated experiences and giving the public greater control over both content and experience.

Increased visitor participation will allow people themselves to reinvent the museum experience, enabling content that can adapt to the preferences of users in real-time."


My comment: If you are a curator and are interested in exploring and understanding what the future of large collections and museums may look like and which forces are going to be driving such changes, this is a good report to read.


Insightful. Inspiring 8/10
