About the museum

This exhibition was made in three days. It’s the result of MuseumCamp, a creative event that took place in the Allard Pierson Museum from 8 until 10 July. Over 70 museum professionals, technology experts and other creative makers explored ways in which technology can be used to bring museum objects to life.

Creative workshops, brainstorms and prototype building were all part of the programme. Those who stayed overnight could start the day with a yoga class.

Beforehand, 17 objects were selected by curators of the Allard Pierson Museum and Special Collections. They chose objects they found exciting, beautiful or touching. Participants worked in teams to create at least one installation for each object during MuseumCamp.

This exhibition shows the end result of their hard work, but also their creative process. We would love to know what you think of it. Use #MuseumCampNL on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
