"Two titans of the British museum world, Sir Nicholas Serota and Neil MacGregor, last night sketched out their visions for the museum of the future.
Both said that the relationship between institutions and their audiences would be transformed by the internet. Museums, they said, would become more like multimedia organisations.
'The future has to be, without question, the museum as a publisher and broadcaster,' said MacGregor, director of the British Museum.
Serota, director of the Tate, said: 'The challenge is, to what extent do we remain authors, and in what sense do we become publishers providing a platform for international conversations?"
