AR in the German Historical Museum

AR mediastation

Last Thursday we inaugurated our media station together with the German Historical Museum.
The historical map of the „Rhine River from Basel to Coblenz“ from 1794 is presented in a completely new way. As part of the „100 Projects for Peace“ initiative, we developed an augmented reality experience with the museum. Visitors will be able to discover the map with the help of an iPad. At up to 30 stations – visualised by place-name signs – users learn more about historical events in the region and details of the map.

We were even able to welcome the first visitors at the AR station and get positive feedback. We are curious how the AR station in the permanent exhibition will be received by the people and what other impressions we will get.

It was a pleasure for us to work together with the German Historical Museum! The support of the German-French Youth Office made the implementation of the media station possible. The museum as well as German and French pupils were responsible for the content.
