Virtual Summit Future of Science Museums
The future of Natural History and Science Museums

True disruption is not temporary: the changes wrought by a once-in-a-century pandemic, a transformative societal movement to fight anti-Black racism, and the accelerating pace of human-driven climate change have left many cultural institutions reeling with the knowledge that they cannot — and should not — return to business as usual, even if and when the current maelstroms abate.

“It would be a mistake to try to reopen the same museum that we closed. This is an opportunity to leapfrog over where we were into some new realm,” said Judy Gradwohl, President and CEO of the San Diego Natural History Museum. She was speaking at a virtual Summit on the Future of Natural History Museums and Science Centers facilitated by Lord Cultural Resources.
