museum education, collection item, virtual application, interaction, group work, Langweil’s Model of Prague, from a museum artefact to virtual reality and back
The article briefly describes the City of Prague Museum, presents examples of digital technologies in its new exhibitions, and points out the limitations of the traditional display of collection items in museum exhibitions. Furthermore, the transformation of museum education programmes for schools in 2017 is presented as well as the need for interaction in educational programmes and the interpretation of collection items, their models, and replicas. The specific example of education programmes Langweil’s Prague and Prague 1848 indicate the possibilities for the interconnection of the physical cardboard model of Prague created by Antonín Langweil with virtual walks through the digitised model on a computer tablet, other collections of the City of Prague Museum, and source texts related to the Czech National Revival period. Finally, other possibilities are indicated, such as the transmission of the virtual model in computer tablets directly to the areas depicted by the paper model.
