Museum apps are everywhere and everyone has something to say about them. But what do we really know about museum apps? Do we really understand the potential and challenges of this new(ish) medium? Night Shift will look into the museum app on October 17th. Not to be blown away by cool pitches and awesome promises, but we’re also not ready to say goodbye to the museum app. On the 17th we want answers. Answers to your questions.

Mobile phones are becoming ever more important to museum visitors (it’s almost like they’re humans too) and apps play an important role. So it’s time to get to know this medium better. What do you want to know, but have you been afraid to ask? Which questions are you mulling over that you think are ‘too dumb’ or ‘too technical’? A team of experts will be on hand on the 17th to answer any and all questions.

To help the experts prepare for the evening, it would be great if we could receive your question(s) beforehand. Please share them here, and we’ll get back to you on the 17th.

Please note: This night will be in Dutch. There will be a limited number of tickets available, so don’t wait too long to order one. If you really want to attend the evening, but can’t afford the ticket, please contact the organisers via
