The Rise of Interactive Displays in Museums
There seems to be no stopping the rise of interactive displays in museums, but what makes them so compelling? Let’s investigate.
In recent years museums began to experience a sharp decline in attendance as they found it difficult to compete with the resources available online. However, since discovering how to benefit from technology, interactive displays in museums are beginning to attract large numbers of visitors, particularly amongst the younger age groups. Consequently, museum managers and curators are including touch screen kiosks, tablets and virtual reality devices to create innovative and imaginative exhibitions to help their visitors feel as though they have stepped back in time.
