But what distinguishes one rifle from the next? It’s the little things, details that are difficult to spot when a collection is installed behind glass. The museum can’t take the weapons out and pass them around, so our solution gives visitors the chance to safely see these objects up close. In this touchscreen experience visitors can explore dozens of swords, rifles, powder horns, and other artifacts by spinning, pinching, and zooming to uncover subtle details.
Museum of the American Revolution
Arms of Independence
The Museum of the American Revolution has brought together some of the most important and compelling weapons and armaments of the American Revolution.
Project Videos and Images
We filmed each object using a custom-designed robotic rigging system and the latest in ultra-high definition macro photography. That extra effort gave the artifacts a more dynamic presentation than a standard still image.
Embedding Curatorial Expertise
We worked alongside curators to customize the documentation for each weapon, making sure we captured the most interesting stories and surfaced them through engaging pop-ups.
The museum takes a thoughtful, yet playful approach…Touch-screen displays throughout allow visitors to ponder what choice they would have made on the eve of war.
