Sparking positive change in museums

Founded in 2009 in England, MuseumNext brings together a passionate community of museum leaders, makers and innovators to ask ‘what’s next for museums?’

We believe that museums must look to the future to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world.

And by bringing together a community of people passionate about museums to share their experiences, we help to spark positive change in the sector.

museum conferences

We’re not an association, foundation or trade show. MuseumNext is a purpose driven business, run by a small and dedicated team with a passion for museums.

We put our heart and soul into sharing best practice and crafting unique events, and we’re told that this shines through in everything that we do.

Above all, we’re driven to serve those making change happen in museums around the world.

MuseumNext Community

Our conferences (usually) take place in cultural capitals around the world (see a short film here). While each is different, what unites them is the friendly laid back atmosphere and a focus on real actionable advice.

Our events have one stage and no fluff, so you know that your time is going to be well spent.

While the world is disrupted by the Covid pandemic we’re bringing our community together online with unmissable virtual events.

Inspire, Empower, Connect

I loved MuseumNext. It had the right combination of edginess, young people and easy laid back charm.
