The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals

There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people. Other people who are willing to take time out and “better” themselves.

Learn where to focus your time and energy to see results

Rather than going through a lot of trial and error, learn from the experience of leading museum professionals from around the world.

Space to Think

Think about the challenges that you are facing in your work and how stepping away from your desk for a couple of days could bring new energy to your work.

New Tools and Trends

Whether on the expo floor, in a presentation or on a museum visit. You’ll get your hands on the newest tools and learn about the latest trends to keep your museum ahead of the pack.


You’ll leave MuseumNext with a notebook packed with new ideas and fresh thinking to share with your colleagues.


I’m not sure this is the most important of all these ten reasons, but I didn’t want to leave it off the list. MuseumNext is a lot of fun…

Don’t miss your chance to attend.

MuseumNext Edinburgh was unable to take place because of the Covid-19 pandemic. In it’s place we have launched the MuseumNext Disrupt Virtual Museum Conference.
