Currently, museums are shifting from the classic didactic presentations of the past towards more interactive exhibition approaches. At the London Science Museum, we conducted the first analysis of the Tell system, which embodies this new approach by encouraging dialogue between visitors. We updated several Tell questions using our analysis of how question formulation affects the quality of the responses and interactions. We developed and implemented Euthanasia, Stem Cell Research and Internet Privacy as new Tell topics.
