How to use smart objects in museums?

In the European meSch-project, new ways are created to tell the stories behind objects in exhibitions. By developing new interactive tools and applications, together with curators and the public. A good example of this co-creation practice could be found in the 'Atlantikwall' exhibition at the Museon in The Hague.

The Atlantikwall was a defense line built by the Germans during the second World War, along almost the entire Western European coastline. In The Netherlands, remains of this impressive concrete wall can still be found. The exhibition made use of the smart interactive objects from the meSch-project. We made this video impression, that shows how visitors and organisors experienced this new way of storytelling.
