In this paper, we present a preliminary analysis of ongoing work that examines ways smartphones have created new forms of sociality and participation in museums. We draw upon initial findings from a study at the Gothenburg Natural History Museum as well as a number of studies conducted at the Universeum, a science center in Gothenburg. Drawing upon these studies, we focus on the documentation practices that take place during museum visits (i.e. the process of taking photographs and recording videos), as well as on sharing practices (i.e. how photos and videos are shared during and after visits).
