If museums were intended as places of learning, how will they adapt to an age where most learning takes place online? Merete Sanderhoff takes this challenge as a call for museums to adapt, by radically rethinking their relationship and attitude towards their own objects. Through opening up and sharing more broadly access to a collection – and the ideas and creativity contained within – museums will be able to remain vital centres of knowledge and cultural development in the 21st century.
