Pre-2014 Events

The Museums Computer Group has hosted meetings for museum technology professionals since 1982. The inaugural UK Museums on the Web conference was held at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, in November 2001. It became an annual highlight in the UK museum sector in 2004. Reflecting the changes within museums, these days our remit reaches beyond the web to any public-facing digital technology.
