MuseumNext is a global conference series on the future of museums, taking place in the world’s cultural capitals since 2009. The conference is a catalyst for innovation, transformation and collaboration in museums, galleries and heritage sites, with more than 900 individuals from 32 countries joining us in 2016.

Each MuseumNext conference has a theme, around which our community comes together to discuss the future of museums. For our European Museum Conference this theme is inspired by the wish to celebrate those people, ideas and technologies that are changing the landscape of the sector.
