This fourth edition in the annual museum series of the NMC Horizon Report examines emerging technologies for their potential impact on and use in museum education and interpretation. The report is made possible through the support of the Marcus Institute for Digital Education in the Arts (MIDEA).

Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and significant challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving museum professionals and boards of trustees a valuable guide for strategic technology planning.

Authors: Johnson, L., Adams Becker, S., Freeman, A.
