Museum Learning Summit

16 - 17 July 2024

Virtual Conference

Trusted by leading museums

The unique experience of learning in the presence of real objects inspires curiosity and creative thinking, and allows museums to develop distinctive and meaningful educational experiences.

But in a constantly changing world of emerging technologies and societal shifts, how are museum educators adapting to shape the future of museum learning?  

The Museum Learning Summit 2024 brings together those leading this work in museums around the world to explore innovative museum practices, highlighting play-based cultural experiences, digital heritage conservation, community engagement in prisons, authentic local storytelling, interdisciplinary STEM-art education, youth integration, decolonizing curricula, food-based initiatives, and family-centered programs, showcasing diverse and modern engagement strategies.

Absolutely top-notch conference. All the talks I attended were informative and valuable, giving me not only aspirational motivation but also a lot of practical, applicable advice and insights. I can't wait for next year!
