May has been declared the first Minnesota Museums Month - a statewide celebration of events and exhibits at local museums. The event kicks off with the 106th annual meeting of the American Association of Museums in the Twin Cities.

On The Daily Circuit Monday, we'll talk about the innovation and future of museums. Sebastian Chan, director of digital and emerging media at the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt Museum will join the discussion alongside Elizabeth Merritt, director of the Center for the Future of Museums.
