在當今時代,博物館的任務日新月, 異博物館不再是讓觀眾消極看看藝術名作或科學創作的地方現代博物館已成為綜合性文化中心:除了典藏研究、保存與展示以外,博物館也是教育、娛樂、訪客服務、和經濟發展的地方。



In the current age, the role of museums are changing with each passing day, no longer places for passive viewing of art or scientific discoveries, contemporary museums are changing into complex cultural places. Aside from the original goals of researching, protecting, and showcasing their collection, museums are also a space of education, recreation, visitor services, and economic development.

Museums have a responsibility to serve the community. If faced with controversy, especially from minority or indigenous visitors, museums should listen carefully and implement policy changes. These ideals can only be realized in a museum where the exhibitions, signage, and events reflect the diversity found in their audience. (where the audience can see themselves represented in the exhibition, signage, and events.

Museum design is an essential factor of accessibility, because of the influence of social media people expect museums to  have a high aesthetic value. Even if the exhibit is full of important information, if the design is bad then the information will not be passed on to the viewer. Museum designers should give equal consideration to theory and practice, as well as understanding the holistic mission of the museum. If the design is successful, then it has the power to express complicated stories and invite museum visitors to think deeply about their own part in art and history.
