On the occasion of the MuseumNext international conference held in Barcelona, on 23 May the MNAC organised the event The Digital Era, what are Catalan museums doing? During the afternoon attendees could see the most innovative initiatives being developed by Catalan museums in the digital sphere. Turnout was high and the event was a success with the public. Most Catalan museums showed great interest in the digital projects of the other institutions and in finding out about digital trends in the museum world.
The event was widely followed on Twitter via the #digimus hashtag, which was very busy all afternoon. You can find a summary of all the tweets it generated here.
