The Challenge


One of the greatest challenges facing museums is to enable visitors to access their collections. Often there are just too many items to display, or sometimes items are too delicate to be put on display. Alternatively, if people cannot get to the museum many curators wish to give them remote access to their collections.


The Solutions


We have built virtual reality replicas of artefacts for a number of clients. These can be accessed from any computer terminal, whether within the museum (e.g. British Museum of Pewter, Shakespeare Birthplace Trust), or remotely over the Internet (e.g. Manchester Museum, Petrie Museum). Remote access can be driven either from a standard web page or directly from the museum's own collection management system.
