Unified Field at the Canadian Museum of History

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian independence, the Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa renovated, modernized and reinterpreted all three galleries in their signature Canadian History Hall.

Unified Field created 46 interactive experiences for the 40,000-square-foot space, which run the gamut from a large-scale, interactive “Conclusion Wall” generated by visitor contributions to a mobile app providing accessible visual and audio content.

At other stations guests can deeply examine artifacts pulled from the museum’s collections, navigate historically significant Canadian documents with multi-media hotspots and explore bilingual video collections. Multi-touch, multi-person table games invite guests to become pioneers and build the Southwold Township, or forage, trap and gather foods in the Foods of New France.

Further interactives let guests design their own vision of a Canadian flag and take on the role of an MP in Parliament.
