The digital technology at the heart of the Museum

When museums, the digital technology and the visitors meet ...

Little by little museums have introduced new technologies within their exhibitions. What are the reasons for this gradual change?

  • A Visitor Museum bonding exchange: The goal is to bring particular experiences that will connect visitors to the museum - having this objective in mind, reformulating the visit to allow the user to live a remarkable moment. Kiosks and terminals provide a sense to the exhibit discovery process and it brings some contents in terms of information and explanations.

With the arrival of the digital era, the introduction of digital technologies in museums and heritage sites became a must.

In this sense, thanks in particular to the digital support, today we have access to 2.0 museums!

  • Relate the visitor to the displayed works: the intention relies more on guiding them during their exploration, instead of leaving the visitor in front of the works displayed. We aim for a connection to the work! The history which is told will connect them more to the work of art being presented.

The real-life experience should be unique and encourage sharing dialogues after the visit. It is exactly the idea set with the arrangement of the digital terminals: to offer a visit complementary.

Thus it is creating an approach for a visit and conversations around a place steeped in history.

Terminals and interactive media

Terminals or interactive tables are a digital media designed for museums or heritage sites and thought to produce a complement to the visit.

Indeed, according to the motivations or to the specifications, terminals can adapt themselves to the needs of the visitor. They can be great sources of information, knowledge, games, videos and much more.

These media supports are mobile and adaptable to their environment. In a sense, they can be used and reused for various purposes. It is their adaptability which also makes them strong.

These kiosks or terminals are tactile thus by an interaction and a real participation in the visit, they offer an experience.

The Nantes Museum of  Fine Arts: An architectural model.


The Stanton Williams architecture firm won in 2009 the international competition for the renovation and the extension of the Nantes Museum of Fine Arts.

The renovation works took place for almost 5 years and released a radical change of the building. Several extensions and renovations make this Museum a strong representation of the city. It is becoming one of the greatest museums of France outside of Paris.
