The purpose of this study is to explore how digital design can revolutionize museum design concepts, display methods and visitor experiences, promote their modernization and enhance their educational functions. By analyzing the principles of digital technologies such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and interaction design and their specific applications in museums, combined with case studies, it is found that digital design significantly enhances the educational function and cultural value of museums, provides a more intuitive and in-depth interpretation of history and culture, and improves operational efficiency and audience satisfaction. The research conclusion shows that digital design is profoundly changing museums, which not only enriches the way of display, but also deepens the audience's participation and sense of experience, becoming an important trend in the future development of museums. However, how to balance the relationship between the traditional and the modern, the physical and the virtual, and how to deal with the challenges of continuous learning needs brought about by technological update, still need further research.
