Museum 2.0: The Smithsonian Opens its Walls with New Technology

Slide presentation by Nina Simon at Museum 2.0.

“K12 teachers are sending in lesson plans” and jump drives with all or nearly all of the Smithsonian collection will be available. They are moving 137 million objects online. In a year they hope to have more than 1.8 million. “Art can start conversations across generations.” “Our art tells stories about the great American spirit.” “And I can promise you…we will surprise you.”

~ quotes from Wayne Clough of the Smithsonian Institute at the National Press Club Event on the Smithsonian and New Technology
