    While Museum Hack tours are driven by passion, we have developed techniques that create dynamic experiences for our visitors. In this section, we will demonstrate and practice creating engaging tours. This will include Museum Hack’s five-step technique for creating a successful “hack” of an exhibit, space, or object: our “5 Elements of a Hack.” We’ll walk through these elements with mini-workshop participants, demonstrate this technique on a piece in the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine's collection, and give participants the chance to experiment constructing narratives about their favorite things in the museum.

    The days of visiting a museum and simply letting the majesty of art and culture wash over you are over!
    Many of today’s visitors want a more participatory experience, where they feel invested in the stories and spaces of the museum. Museum Hack has developed a series of engaging activities that help visitors look closer, make personal connections with objects, and have a lot of fun in exhibition spaces. We’ll practice activities that encourage visitors to verbalize their feelings in an open and non-threatening environment, enable them to explore museum spaces and objects kinesthetically, and utilize smartphone technology to continue exploring and making connections long after the tour is over. This section will include techniques for developing activities for adult audiences.
