Museum musings

Museum-going before school starts?

Although many museums showcase exciting use of technology and a variety of formats (my favorite new addition to the list: the Museum of the Bible in DC) new tech applications are triggering fresh challenges.

Museum excecs have always struggled with “unauthorized augmentations of exhibits, (ie unofficial tours,) but AR (augmented reality) has brought a new set of issues: Does a museum own the virtual space adjacent to exhibits and displays, or is that space free to everyone? A timely question for tech-loving tweens and teens to ponder.
