Museums: a door to the future
In the Museum of the Future was the title of an ambitious project to set out the various possible paths that lay ahead for museums in Finland. As Raili Huopainen describes it, the goal was not to imagine a ‘museum of tomorrow’, but to use the highly developed methods and techniques of futurology in museum planning. She played a significant role in the project and is director of the Provincial Museum of Lapland, which received the Council of Europe Museum Award in 1994. In 1995–97 she worked on museum activities for the National Board of Antiquities and is now developing a project on cultural investments as a part of the structure of economic life in the town of Rovaniemi.
