For hundreds of years, museums have relied on wealthy benefactors to contribute to their galleries, management and bank accounts.
But increasingly it’s private companies that are making major contributions to museums. This includes technology, security, education, marketing and more.
Today’s post highlights the changing face of education in the museum. It talks about how outside companies (like Museum Hack) are coming into the museum to help increase engagement and bring in new audiences. It is a quick summary based on The NMC Horizon Report: 2015 Museum Edition.
“The NMC Horizon Report: 2015 Museum Edition” is a collaborative report created by The New Media Consortium and Balboa Park Online Collaborative, and covers the major trends in the museum industry in 2015.
