Thoughts on Rebooting Ottawa's dusty museums

Bottom line - think big!

Here at home, not so much. Including in the War Museum, whose impressive building and collection lack modern enhancements and instead feature antiquated plaques and AV that might have impressed visitors to the Ontario Science Centre in 1983.

So here’s what I mean about not thinking small. The Science and Innovation Museum shouldn’t just be about itself.

It should reach out to all the tired museums in Ottawa and revitalize them. Four-year-old children today can work tablets effortlessly so no display attached to anything in a showcase Ottawa exhibition should be less cool than an iPad.
