MuseumDigit

ABOUT US

MuseumDigit is organized by the Hungarian National Museum’s National Centre of Museological Methodology and Information. Being a showcase of innovative digital cultural trends and solutions, our conference welcomes heritage and museum professionals, decision makers, researchers, developers, IT specialists, creatives and communication experts. This year’s program and speakers are listed in the Program menu item.

THE CONFERENCE

In the history of MuseumDigit, as everywhere in the world, a new chapter began with the pandemic. We recognized early that we need to change the framework of the conference and say good-bye to some of its benefits – the joy of meeting in person, the splendid interior of the National Museum.
So we developed a new format.   
We found a new and innovative solution we have not seen elsewhere. MuseumDigit is now stepping out of the walls of the National Museum and inviting participants to enter a virtual space. The conference will take place in an imaginary, virtual space supplemented with online events.
Wandering freely among the pavilions, visitors can watch the talks according to their interests, unbound by space and time, during the conference on November 26 and 27, 2020. We hope to reach the widest possible audience and let them dive into the mindsets of today’s museum thinkers, therefore talks are translated and subtitled both in English and Hungarian. All the presentations are accessible FREE of charge. To participate, please register here.
