The GIFT Box is a set of free, open-source tools and ways of working to help museums offer richer digital experiences for their visitors. It includes resources to help design, plan and implement enhanced visitor experiences.
The GIFT Box provides:
- Easy to use design and planning tools that help museums make richer visitor experiences.
- Ready-made open-source digital tools that have been developed and tested in museums.
- Practical recommendations on how to deal with digital design and change from 10 international museums.
The GIFT Box is a result of the GIFT project – a research project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research programme. The project brings together internationally renowned artists, designers, museum professionals and researchers to help museums create hybrid experiences: Experiences that combine the physical and digital to create personal encounters with cultural heritage. The project started in January 2017 and run for three years, to December 2019.
