Worcester Art Museum
The purpose of this project is to enhance the visitors’ experience by creating interactive media to supplement the Knights! Exhibition in the Worcester Art Museum. The result is an informative web-based Map and Timeline Application. The application launched at the opening night of the Knights! Exhibition on March 28th 2014, showcasing the chronological and geographical relationships of the twelve helmets in the Knights of the Round Table section. It transformed the exhibition into a more interactive space, expanding the museum’s visitor demographics. In addition, it replaced the extended wall labels about the helmets. The application was highly regarded by the museum and its visitors. By the time the project concluded, the museum had also adapted the application for use in other galleries.
