Attracting Younger Non-Museum Goers Through Curated Digital Experiences
What does the future virtual museum look like? How can we use today’s technology to bring our collections and a global audience together? For two years, MiA together with KulturIT, Anno museum and Museums in Østfold, have been developing a cutting-edge platform for digital storytelling: Virtual Museum. The aim is to reach out to a younger audience who are not visiting museums today through various interactive formats and immersive experiences. By opening and making our collections available and inclusive, we are developing a new standard for digital museum storytelling in Norway and Sweden.
