Museums, Games and Play Summit

Whats On

28th February - 2nd March 2022

Inspiring ideas and case studies looking at games and play in museums

Museums are typically thought of as destinations to house and display art, artefacts and collections of cultural interest. But in an age of shortened attention spans, it’s becoming more obvious that museums can’t simply be something nice to look at — they must actively engage their visitors.

To do this, many institutions are turning to play, in its many forms, to both engage and educate those who walk through their doors.

The Museums, Games & Play Summit will bring together museum professionals from around the globe to share best practice in creating engaging playful experiences both in the museum and online.
