Queensland Museum’s Anzac Legacy Gallery is a permanent social history exhibition created to mark the 100th Anniversary of WWI.
The exhibition brings to life over 200 stories of Queensland men and women, via 12 immersive and interactive experiences created by ROMEO Digital.
ROMEO creative director, Marco Eychenne explains: “The latest technology allowed us to use 100 year-old artefacts in new ways to create personal connections with the digital generation, as well as the typewriter generation.”
The exhibition incorporates creative storytelling, interactive touchscreens, large-scale LED walls, photogrammetry, 3D modelling and VR to present fresh points of view on WWI.
Queensland Museum principal curator, Geraldine Mate said: “The ANZAC legend is a key pillar of the Australian identity.
“We wanted to explain the ANZAC story in a contemporary way, through a personal journey that shows how Queenslanders experienced the war at home and overseas – through the eyes of our ANZACS.”
Queensland Museum will hold a special Anzac Legacy Gallery Symposium on Saturday April 27 with guest speakers covering topics including Gallipoli and beyond, Indigenous soldiers’ stories, untold stories of notable women and how the gallery itself was brought to life.
