Our founder, Nick Gray, was recently quoted in this Forbes article Our Museums Are Broken – These 5 Fixes Can Make Them Fun Again.
While the title is unfortunate (not all museums are broken!), and a few people can’t seem to look past our silly suggestion for nap rooms… We think there is a lot of work that some museums have to do to re-engage with their adult audiences.
How Nick thinks museums can be improved:
- Updated Photo Policies
- Cafes with Coffee, Tea, and Wine
- Improved Hours of Operation
- Nap Rooms
- Premium Guided Tours
A note about the Nap Rooms suggestion, from Nick:
I wasn’t going to include this, until I reflected how much I enjoyed the nap space at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan) in Tokyo, Japan. It doesn’t have to be a physical room where people sleep – but providing a space where visitors can relax, charge their phones, and tune out for a while would be pretty awesome.
