Τα μουσεία έχουν εξελιχθεί σε χώρους συζήτησης, στο­χασμού, κίνησης, δημιουργίας, συμμετοχής, και προσω­πικής και επαγγελματικής εξέλιξης. Φιλόδοξα προγράμματα διαλέξεων με διεπιστημονική προσέγγιση δίνουν νέο νόημα σε καλλιτεχνικά έργα και εκθέσεις. Εφαρμογές για έξυπνες συσκευές και άλλες τεχνολογίες προσελκύ­ουν τη νέα γενιά επισκεπτών. Μουσεία και πολιτιστικοί οργανισμοί εκμεταλλεύονται τους χώρους τους για να φιλοξενήσουν προγράμματα σπουδών, εργαστήρια και­νοτομίας, ακόμη και μαθήματα γιόγκα.

Καθώς τα μουσεία προσπαθούν να παίξουν ενεργό ρόλο στις κοινότητές τους, καλούνται να αφουγκραστούν και να απαντήσουν στις σύγχρονες κοινωνικές προκλήσεις. Στο Μάντσεστερ της Βρετανίας, το μουσείο Whitworth έκανε την κοινότητα μέρος της καλλιτεχνικής του απο­στολής. δίνοντας στους επισκέπτες τη δυνατότητα να δι­αμορφώσουν αυτοί το πρόγραμμα και τις εμπειρίες τους και ως αποτέλεσμα έλαβε το βραβείο του Μουσείου της Χρονιάς για το 2015 από το Artfund. Στη Νέα Υόρκη, το New Museum, το μόνο μουσείο της πόλης που ασχολεί­ται αποκλειστικά με τη σύγχρονη τέχνη, έχει επεκταθεί στον κοινωνικό και επιχειρηματικό χώρο με πρωτοβου­λίες όπως το φεστιβάλ IDEAS ClTY και η επιχειρηματική θερμοκοιτίδα NEW ΙΝC για καλλιτέχνες. σχεδιαστές και επαγγελματίες της τεχνολογίας. Το πολιτιστικό πρόγραμ­μα του ιδρύματος Bloomberg Philanthropies βοηθά ορ­γανισμούς όπως το Metropolitan Museum of Art και το American Museum of Natural History να προσελκύσουν νέο κοινό με εξαιρετικά σχεδιασμένα ψηφιακά προγράμ­ματα όπως η εφαρμογή 82nd and Fifth. Στο πέμπτο ετήσιο συνέδριο για τα μουσεία, επαγγελματί­ες από τον χώρο των μουσείων και του πολιτισμού απότην Ελλάδα, τις Η.Π.Α. και τη Μεγάλη Βρετανία θα εξετάσουν με ποιο τρόπο τα μουσεία και οι πολιτιστικοί οργανισμοί μπορούν να επικοινωνήσουν με ετερόκλητες ομάδες κοι­νού και να αποτελέσουν φορείς αλλαγής στην κοινωνία.
