The way this story about technology in art museums is written , you’d think that the old fogey art museums are finally getting with the times and beginning to offer stuff as wild as touch-screen displays.
Art, children, and other museums have been incorporating technology into their displays for a long time. In all fairness art museums have not had as many opportunities to incorporate technology into their displays. Moving dinosaur model = good. Moving Leonardo model = creepy. Actually, now that I mention it, I recently saw a great exhibit on Leonardo’s art that included moving models of some of his robots.
I will grant that art museums were a little slow to jump onto the technology band wagon compared to history and science-themed museums. However, they are certainly not stuck in the stone age when it comes to showing off art from, well, the stone age.
