In recent history society has experienced a cultural and cognitive shift in the way we interact. The rapid rise of communications technology has altered the way we process information and it has changed the way we learn. While classrooms have recognized this change, museums have not and as a result museum attendance has begun to suffer. The crux of the predicament appears to be knowledge based. Museums do not know how to refashion themselves as a persuasive entity worth visiting. They lack the resources that will teach them to deliver interactive design exhibits that stimulate and engage an audience. They do not understand the implicit repercussions of not changing. It is critical that museums react to the transformation that has taken place. Otherwise, society will lose this invaluable expression of our heritage.
