MOT International beginnings
MOT was started by a group of technology museum curators from UK, France and Belgium. Technology museums and museums in general have been struggling with low visitor counts for years now, which continue to drop year after year. People just don’t seem to be that interested in museums anymore and we here at MOT have took it upon ourselves to try and make museums interesting again. To do that we’ve come up with several methods and resources for museum curators to use. Seeing how we are technology oriented organization, we decided to use technology as a tool. For example we already mentioned the use of indoor drones for making up short aerial invitational tours of museums. Another project that we are working on is the use of holographic info plates at museum exhibits. MOT was started back in 2014 as a non-profit organization based in Brussels. Since we started our little effort, we’ve expanded our network of museum partners significantly, and every year new museums become proud members of the MOT International efforts.
