• Johannes Bernhardt deposited Transformation des Museumserlebnisses – Ein Toolkit on Humanities Commons 7 months ago

    Digital transformation needs exchange. This applies to the discussion with museum visitors as well as with colleagues from other museums. In an international perspective, the Smithsonian Institution and the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum undoubtedly hold a leading position in this respect. The Baden State Museum therefore established contact with the American colleagues some time ago and benefited greatly from the exchange in the further development of its own digital strategy. It therefore made sense also to translate the “Tools and Approaches for Transforming Museum Experience” developed by Carolyn Royston, Rachel Ginsberg and a collective of authors and to make it more accessible for the German debate. The toolkit contains thoughts and ideas on why transforming museum experiences is necessary; it raises questions to help leaders and practitioners design transformative museum experiences; and it offers insights into strategies for taking this work forward for audiences and different communities, including useful tools and approaches for practical work.
