Museum-iD presents a stimulating, enriching and transformative mix of ideas and opinions from leading museum innovators and shares the latest concepts and developments from museums globally.

Committed to sharing innovative museum theory and practice, Museum-iD is the centre of a global network of like-minded museum peers interested in a more open and progressive approach to professional inquiry. You’ll benefit from the latest ideas from leading curators, collections specialists, conservation staff, audience development professionals, educators, digital pioneers, exhibition designers and developers, leaders and directors. We’re interested in the cross-fertilisation of exceptional ideas in museums globally. We want our readers to learn from – and be inspired by – different perspectives outside their specialism and locality.
