What do you think of when you hear the word “museum”? Stately buildings with lots of columns? Peaceful spaces displaying priceless art? How about glowing screens, audio/visual add-ons, or even virtual reality space walks? 

The museum experience is changing, and Centralis’ Kathi Kaiser will offer a glimpse of the future at her upcoming talk, “Museums, Tech, and UX: The Future of the Museum Experience”, at this year’s UXPA International Conference in Toronto. Kathi will be speaking from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm ET on Tuesday, June 6 at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel.

Kathi will explore several ways in which museums are using apps, digital labels in exhibits, and immersive digital experiences to widen the scope of their users’ experience. With examples from Centralis’ in-gallery usability testing, she will show how cultural institutions are currently leveraging technology to support their physical collections. Kathi will also discuss how museum staff and UX practitioners can learn from each other as technology becomes more pervasive in the museum space.

Come join Kathi for what is sure to be a fun and thought-provoking session!
