Evolving Museums
Displaying historical artifacts and artworks, museums are temples of knowledge, respected as arbiters of culture and the arts. This image is reinforced by forbidding, majestic buildings. But in recent years, many museums and galleries are undergoing an evolution. They're leveraging design to become spaces that feel both fresh and intimate, bringing visitors much closer to their exhibits. Our presenters set out to learn more about this bold strategy. They visit a museum that's undergone a renovation to become a place for public relaxation, and another using the latest tech to change the relationship between viewer and object. Explore new ways to examine history and art, and discover the latest museum designs and what lies ahead!
