Nuremberg Museum of the Future

For the Museum of the Future, we designed and realized a total of over 70 interactive stations in which a wide variety of technologies are used.

  • Customer

    Deutsches Museum Nürnberg

  • Client

    Atelier Brückner GmbH

For the new museum, an overarching design system was developed, taking into account the corporate design. The complexity of this task lay in the wide range of media and technologies used. Touchscreens, projection mapping, AR applications, object recognition, gesture control or even remote controls, voice input and the connection of mechatronic components had to be included.

A Mars rover model stands in the Martian landscape

At the "Mars Rover" station visitors have the opportunity to control a small rover, time-delayed, on a simulated Mars surface by means of command chains.

An interactive touch table

At station "Recycle-Bar" Visitors can examine different objects for their composition, expiry times and reuse. By rotating the objects on a screen, they can access the individual pieces of information.

Making complex content tangible

The interactive stations encourage visitors to engage and make the abstract, complex content tangible.

One example is the "Wunschkind" station. Here, visitors can use a touch application to carry out genetic manipulations for a child in order to exclude diseases or enhance abilities. This makes the technologically and ethically complex topic of genetic engineering tangible and understandable.

"Wunschkind"-station: Visitors can manipulate the genes of their fictitious child and simulate their later life.

Station Served up: Interactive petri dish

"Aufgetischt" provides information about various real and fictional dishes and foods. When the petri dish is placed on the screen, the table is set. By turning the bowl, visitors can call up different content about the dish.

The exhibit "Weltraumschrott" provides an insight into the topic of space debris. A large telescope is used to aim at various objects suspended in real space.A virtual AR level is provides information on the targeted objects.
