Abstract

This project integrated technology and history to transform the visitor experience at the Higgins Armory Museum. The team upgraded the museum’s “Virtual Armory” website, creating a Virtual Tour with interactive and multimedia content for over a dozen pieces in the Higgins collection, including videos, animations, interactive graphics, and a Flash-based minigame. The team also implemented pilot QR code technology, allowing museum visitors to access Virtual Armory content onsite using their smartphones.
