New Media

The National Museum of American History has a track record of innovative and successful electronic outreach. From our Web sites to our blog to our social networking presence, many visitors experience the museum electronically in addition to, or instead of, in person. Through innovative and appropriate uses of technology, the Department of New Media facilitates interaction with the Museum’s exhibitions, collections, and programs, both inside and outside the walls of the Museum. Our goals are to:

  1. Facilitate object-based learning through electronic outreach 
  2. Promote the Museum and engage audiences in American history topics 
  3. Enhance the visitor experience with appropriate technology 
  4. Cultivate resources and manage effectively
