Project Abstract

The Museum of Wellington City & Sea wants to expand the new ways of seeing concept developed by the Wellington Museums Trust by installing a camera obscura exhibition. The goal of our project was to develop the supportive educational and interactive experiences and a marketing plan for a camera obscura exhibition at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea. We sought to accomplish this through interviewing museum staff, surveying and interviewing visitors, and building a camera obscura model to perform a formative analysis. Finally, we provided recommendations for a complete camera obscura exhibition including educational programmes, interactive supplemental material, and marketing strategies.
