Reimagining Museums is the culmination of Lena Weisman’s (History ’22) independent research project on immersive technology in museums. This evolving student pin-up exhibition explores six key questions surrounding the integration, incorporation, and implementation of augmented and virtual reality. Weisman aims to add to the ongoing debate of the potential for technology to assist museums in creating inclusive, accessible, and equitable visitor experiences.
