Summary In this chapter, we explore how the architectural threshold has become a significant concept for curators and for museum studies, as digital technologies increasingly shape the interaction between visitors and exhibitions. In recent years, the way in which visitors first arrive in a museum has changed profoundly, as have the technologies that those visitors bring with them. The photographing and social sharing of images taken within museums have extended the museum into digital space, so that for many visitors, the 'curated experience' begins well before they set foot within the physical architecture of the museum. These changes require news ways of conceptualising the museum, most particularly, the notion that these highly connected visitors create a new threshold by curating and publishing their personal experiences, thus making meanings through new interfaces.
