Keio University, the oldest institute of western higher education in Japan, opened its first university museum, named Keio Museum Commons (KeMCo) in April 2021. To facilitate cultural encounters and interactions among the students, academics, as well as broader public audiences, KeMCo challenges in weaving the physical museum visit and the online digital experience. This paper aims to explore the practices and experiences we have acquired from the development and implementation and further clarify the fundamental principles of how university museums can create digital-physical hybrid experiences across the academic-public sphere.
