Arsenals of History is an annual symposium of firearms museum, and met this year at the newly renovated Cody Firearms Museum (https://centerofthewest.org/explore/firearms/). The theme of this year’s symposium was social media and museums. This presentation was given by Danny Michael, Assistant Curator for he Cody Firearms Museum. Video games today are a massive influence on much of society, and today’s big-name games (like Battlefield One and Call of Duty) often include quite accurate representations of historical firearms. How can a museum best cater to the interest of gamers who find themselves looking at the real-world models of those game elements? Should museums recognize this at all? What are some options and potential practices?
