This design research graduation project examines visitor interaction with museum objects, taking the Natural History Museum in Dublin as a case study. The idea for this project came from my own experience within this extraordinary place and an amazing example of a Victorian “museum of museums” filled with stuffed animals from around the globe. Looking at the collection and environmental aspects, I explored two topics: a safari and Irish insects.
The completed research process was printed as a perfect bound, 168x260mm book, on a recycled uncoated eco-paper to give a sense and natural feeling of the concept. The book contents a creative process, research and mood boards which present styles, colour codes, inspirations and a user journey leading to a final concept within the museum space.
The main proposal contains “a family visitor path” with selected objects, identified by QR code symbol. There are two options to explore the exhibition: with a printed flyer or with a digital app.
