A nice mention of the MCG’s UK Museums on the Web in Time magazine, ‘Un-Stuffy Museum: The Louvre Goes High-Tech with Video-Console Guides‘:

“…partnerships are valuable as technology evolves faster than any museum alone can follow. At conferences like MuseumNext in Barcelona or Museums and the Web in the U.K. and U.S., institutions from around the world gather to share their experiences and learn about the most recent digital advances in the museum community.”

Huge thanks and congratulations to all our speakers and participants over the years, and to the hard-working MCG Committee and hosting venues who’ve helped make the Museums on the Web conferences such a success.

We’ve posted an exciting line-up for July’s event with the Digital Learning Network, ‘Engaging digital audiences in museums’ (at the University of Manchester), and we’ve already started our planning for UKMW12, to be held in late November 2012.  If you can’t wait that long, you can get inspired by reading some blog posts about the 2011 UK Museums on the Web Conference: The innovative museum: creating a brighter future.
