“Clever, delightful and thought provoking. Great collection of people thinking innovatively and with passion”
– Helen Divjak, London Transport Museum

Each year Museum Ideas brings together a group of fascinating speakers and challenges them to share innovative ideas in concise, powerful talks. The aim is for delegates to be inspired by perspectives outside their own specialism and locality. What unites the conference is the quality and enthusiasm of contributors along with their desire to share valuable expertise and experience.
