We’ve been saying for a while that museums should be more immersive, more tactile and more interactive. But how do museums evolve when the notion of touch now comes at a public health risk?
Museums have the rare ability to create a connection between a visitor and a moment in time. With digital experiences, the interactions geared towards visitor engagement can become more personalized and memorable, and can embody the values of the stories being told in the exhibits.
Before New York’s #STAYHOME measures were put into place, The Statue of Liberty Museum’s 4.3 million annual visitors could explore the Statue’s history, impact, and the ideas it represents through immersive and interactive exhibits. Although temporarily closed, the museum is a new destination amongst New York City’s cultural icons, and this past week the Statue of Liberty Museum celebrated it’s one year anniversary.
Using the Statue of Liberty Museum as a case study, join ESI Design’s Emily Webster and host Alexandre Simionescu of FLOAT4 to discuss:
- How creative, content and tech work together for a memorable experience
- What to consider when incorporating digital content and technology into museums
- How to build connection in museums without touch
- What changes we’re likely to see in museums post-pandemic
