New technology contributes to a richer museum visit

Kunstporten is the result of a unique collaboration between Lillehammer Art Museum, the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, the Munch Museum, Henie Onstad Art Center, Haugar Vestfold Art Museum, Drammens Museum and the Astrup Fearnley Museum.

The design and IT company Making Waves has been responsible for strategy, concept, design and technical development. The project has received support from the Sparebankstiftelsen DNB.

The art gate has been developed especially for families with children and young people, where they can get to know art at seven Norwegian art institutions, by hunting for and exploring works of art. Children can be art agents and solve assignments in the face of art. Young people are helped to make useful sticky notes that they can use in several subjects in upper secondary school. The app is developed for iPhone / iPod, is free to download, and can be used on own phones or on lending units at museums.

At Drammens Museum, works from Det Faste Galleriet have been selected. The production has taken place in collaboration with the target groups.
