One to One Development Trust are creating a ‘virtual museum’ to house artefacts and memorabilia sourced through the heritage project. The virtual museum will also include video extracts, audio and interactive areas. The museum will bring the heritage of the Club alive for new audiences as well as creating the first virtual museum for a sports club.
So what is a virtual museum?
A virtual museum is a digital interpretation, drawing on the characteristics of a museum. A virtual museum can complement, enhance, or augment the museum experience through personalization, interactivity and richness of content. The Castleford Tigers Virtual Museum will be a blue print for the Club that captures some of its rich history and place within the local community.
The Virtual Museum is an ambitious and exciting challenge; it will have different zones to represent different parts of the project. Andy Campbell, Head of Digital Media at One to One Development Trust says “we are currently building a wire frame for the museum in a software package called Unity, through the artefacts the volunteers are scanning we are creating exhibitions and walk through galleries, as the exhibits are scanned and catalogued they go into what we are calling the Memory Box, ready for use later on in the museum”.
