Chloe White describes the evolution of museums from private collections of curiosities to publicly funded institutions serving the purposes of education, entertainment, and historical preservation. Recounting ways in which museums have adopted technological advances (gramophones, dramagraphs, films, audio guides), White urges museums to employ virtual and augmented reality technologies to revive interest in museums (at a time when people have endless entertainment options available) and to make museums appealing to a wider audience.
