Museums are traditional and collection based cultural institutions. From the very beginning of the 20th century the established approaches in museums have been continuously challenged by social and technological changes. New topics including modernization are newly in the centre of interest. The main method used to examine the current state of using new media in exhibitions and visitor engagement in Czech museums was quantitative research with surveys. With regards to the dynamic development in the area of the research surveys were conducted longitudinally in 2015 and in 2020. This approach helped to capture more complex reality and trends in time. Respondents are museum employees from 358 institutions. The use of new media for museum displays increased significantly, while less than a half of the museums launched an online exhibition project. Almost all museums are offering accompanying programs and more than 80 % also offer game activities. Adoption of new media methods and ideas in Czech museums is gradual but it is increasing. Technically less demanding displays are more frequent, lectures dominate in accompanying programs and games are predominantly non-digital.
