Sonita Alleyne: we're in a position now where museums are part of present – I like the idea of the Museum in Minecraft #MuseumOfTheFuture
Mark Walport @uksciencechief: it seems to me there are 2 ways of interacting – look and learn, but also interact #MuseumOfTheFuture
David Chipperfield: it's so important to have easy access but there's a struggle between objects' beauty and information #MuseumOfTheFuture
We've heard from the #MuseumOfTheFuture audience, and now the panel are making their final remarks

An audience member is lamenting the missed opportunity of looking at historical porn from #pompeiiexhibition #MuseumOfTheFuture – thoughts?
Sonita Alleyne: objects are the point of the museum, you are never going to lose that. It’s about augmenting them #MuseumOfTheFuture
Sonita Alleyne: the internet is about capturing people’s imagination, and telling stories #MuseumOfTheFuture

Viewing objects 'physically' and 'virtually' aren't competing but complementing each other #MuseumOfTheFuture @britishmuseum @googleart

Mark Walport: #MuseumOfTheFuture is the opportunity to share things with other museums, exhibitions – democratising beautiful things
My favourite idea so far linking objects across museums, their original locations and info (also academic research!) #MuseumOfTheFuture

Lots of ideas being discussed at #MuseumOfTheFuture could be achieved by making more collections available as open data @britishmuseum
