The MediaLab is a small team within the Creative Development Group in the Digital Media Department at MET. Our job, broadly speaking, is to explore the impact that technology can have on the museum experience. More specifically, we do this by working with New York's creative technology community, to develop prototypes and proofs-of-concept that we share with Met staff to get feedback and fuel conversation.

Our projects are low-budget, open-source, and rapidly iterated.
