When they work well they can be extremely popular, regarded by all ages as valuable and fun, informal educational tools, helping to broaden visitor’s notions of what art – as well as the spatial identity of the institutions with responsibility for its wider mediation – can be. The museum sector has regarded digital media as a vital weapon in advancing its public service ethos.
