Initial research visit
We spent the day at the museum and took photos and notes of all of the various models, historical pieces and digital displays. We were also given given a behind the scenes tour to learn about the history of the museum. As well as a talk from the head of digital design for the museum to learn what direction they want to take in their plans for future digital exhibitions.
We made a list of what things in the museum worked well and why. Like the wide range of interesting content and rich depictions of both old and new Bristol. However we felt that much of the technical implementation was dated and there are some brilliant topics of Bristol’s culture and history that were only briefly touched upon. A few of the things we wanted to see more of was the history of music, cultural and political movements, and the vibrant art and graffiti scene.
