Museograph is a multidisciplinary team that can research and develop content, design exhibition systems and manage complex projects.
We can also assist with scoping reports, feasibility studies and funding strategies to help your projects along.
Technology and social media
Museograph has a user centred approach to exhibition technology and we can offer a range of media solutions including touch screens and, interactive projections, as well as more traditional museum display techniques.
Museograph can develop creative, hands on educational programmes for primary and secondary education, designing packs and digital materials as a follow up to the museum experience. All material is created by Anthony Breese, an experienced education teacher and IT specialist.
Our exhibitions are client focussed and developed using ecomuseuim principles. We collaborate with our clients, working with voluntary organisations as well as local authorities and produce exhibitions with a strong sense of place.
