The Relevance of Museums in a Digital Age – The National Museum of Singapore as a case study

Angelita Teo, National Museum of Singapore, Singapore

The National Museum of Singapore is constantly at the forefront of technology adoption in Singapore’s museum sector, bringing in new and relevant ways to engage with an increasingly connected audience. Museums do not exist merely as repositories of knowledge, but aim to provide curated insights and perspectives. In that light, harnessing technology to reach out to a new digital audience is not just desired, but essential to the continued relevance of museums to a generation that spends as much time in the digital space as in the physical. The National Museum of Singapore shares its journey of exploration into meaningful digital engagement.
