Conference: Exploring Heritage

Organised by
LVR-Archäologischer Park Xanten (DE)

The LVR-RömerMuseum organises the international conference"Exploring Heritage - Museums mediating archaeology - Wege digitaler Archäologievermittlung im Museum". The conference is meant for people working in museums with interpretation. Digital methods nowadays are an important part of museum interpretation work. Virtual-, Augmented- or Mixed-Reality-Apps or narrative-immersive Multivisions should address visitors of all target groups and age groups. The goal of this conference is to get a good overview of the status quo of the use of media in museums and to discuss its potential, interpretation goals and challenges with museum professionals.
