Finding the balance of high tech and low tech interpretation is a common challenge across Museums and Heritage sites. It’s a highly creative process, exploring ideas and concepts that will engage audiences and deliver a memorable visitor experience. We introduced the Eltham Palace Project in another post, highlighting some of our key lessons learnt on approaches. At the M&H show this year we were invited to give a case study presentation along with our client English Heritage and our exhibition design partners Bright3D.

A year on and the project won the AHI Award for  and at the M&H Show Awards the project was Highly Commended, so here we share some of the results to date and an insight into the project, watch the case study presentation here.

“Good dwell time and visitor engagement through a good balance of interpretation without compromising rooms. The project exhibits good layered interpretation, good use of media to enhance key messaging, along with clear aims and themes. It is well executed to create new perspectives on an inflexible space, so getting away from a linear visitor flow.”
