The Museum in a Box helps museums increase access to their collections through tactile object-based learning, simple tech, and audio responses to interaction.
Museum in a Box puts museum collections and expert knowledge into your hands, wherever you are in the world. They have built an innovative update on the old idea of a museum handling collection, where low-value objects are rented by schools for a short time. They have added 3D prints, postcards, near-field communication (NFC) technology, and Raspberry Pi to connect museum objects to the web, and radically increase outreach and engagement for museums.
It’s an intriguing, tactile mix of replica objects and contextual content direct from museum curators and educators.
