Abstract

Working alongside the Worcester Historical Museum (WHM), our group collected historical and technological information to aid the reconstruction of the Fuller Industrial History Gallery. Experts, scholarly literature, and digital platforms were surveyed to ascertain modern digital methods of museum display. This report also presents potential new artifacts for the Gallery with information regarding the evolution of the wire and metal trades industries especially Morgan Construction in the early 20th century and Kinefac in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. This IQP provides recommendations on smart technologies and industrial artifacts for inclusion in the renovated Gallery.
