This TweetUp explored the collaboration between Museum Hack and Reynolda House. Reynolda House staff gathered onsite with online participants near and far to discuss the "hack" of Reynolda's digital collections, which include American art, historic house, and estate archives, and how they work together for a unique visitor experience.
The #HackReynolda TweetUp will provided an opportunity for museum visitors and professionals in the museum field alike to engage in a dialogue about visitor-centered experiences.
Ideas discussed included the advantages and pitfalls of allowing visitors to curate their own content, the curatorial challenges and opportunities of a digitized collection, how Museum Hack's approach has successfully reached a "non-museum" audience, and the impact of online collections on how museum staff interact and work together.
