“Re-inventing the Museum”

The Street Museum app overlaps historical scenes onto real life street views. Any reader of the AAM’s Museum Magazine recognises this project as one of the Museum of London’s outreach programs designed to move the museum collection out of the “box” of the museum building and into the lives of Londoners and international visitors; and more importantly, non-going museum audiences. StreetMuseum is celebrating 500,000 downloads.

The driving force behind this brain child, Antony Robbins, is in town this week for the digital GLAM event: Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. 

Tonight’s lecture was really just the kick off for tomorrow’s symposium, held at the University of Melbourne’s star attraction, the Melbourne School of Design.
