Archeological Museum

The 'Windows to Heritage' exhibition will be open to the public from next Tuesday, August 9, to October 2


The Cueva Pintada Museum and Archaeological Park looks at the identity past of the Canary archipelago through the exhibition '
Windows to Heritage', which opens on Tuesday, August 9, at 11:00 am, at the Gáldar museum and will be open to the public until October 2.

The exhibition is located on the terraces of the museum and archaeological park. It can be visited free of charge during the opening hours of the museum, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Sundays and holidays, from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The exhibition initiative highlights the importance of approaching the legacy
Canarian heritage to its inhabitants Through the use of technologies such as augmented reality, videos of historical recreation, virtual reality, intelligent beaconing, 3D scanning through a touch screen or QR that links to information pills.

The sample

'Windows to Heritage' is an itinerant and versatile exhibition made up of a montage in two sections, with panels and technological resources that allow living a
immersive experience on the Canarian cultural heritage.

A perimeter system has been created for the space with telescopic bars and printed canvases, together with
a central technological assembly that proposes to make a tour that allows interacting with each technological model.

The ICT modules are made up of augmented reality where
an avatar explains on arrival the dynamics of the exhibition.

The experience also includes videos of
historical reenactment with actors from the past, as well as an animation that narrates historical events.

Virtual reality is present through the personal mobile phone and an intelligent beacon serves to be able to listen to announcements about a particular milestone. The spectacular 3D scanning of museum pieces allows you to appreciate the objects
as if we could touch them. The touch screens and QR codes that redirect to audiovisual interviews with expert personnel on different heritage topics complete the interactive and family experience that the initiative seeks.

Museums 3.0

The director and curator of the Cueva Pintada Museum and Archaeological Park, Carmen Gloria Rodríguez, highlights that the exhibition 'Windows to Heritage' "has the enormous quality of trying to carry out,
in a single installation, an overview of different heritage values ​​of the islands. The tangible and intangible heritage of a territory fragmented by its insularity requires these resources that bring the cultural wealth of the archipelago closer to the citizenry».

The Gáldar museum installation itself is no stranger to the use of new technologies to offer a complete experience for its visits. In addition, Cueva Pintada develops a project of
3D documentation of the collection of archaeological materials kept in the museum. Within the 'Sketchfab' platform, a profile of the museum has been created, where the materials that are already documented can be consulted.

That is why the director of the Galician museum and archaeological park has no doubt that these new forms of presentation "provide innovation to the way of enjoying knowledge about the
heritage values and, in addition, they invite you to get to know them, to go beyond the 3D experience through the QR code».

Carmen Gloria Rodríguez assures, in this sense, that «the objective must not remain in the exhibition experience, it is necessary to promote
the desire to visit,
to live Y
feel the cultural heritage of the Canary Islands.
