CHALLENGE

Each museum exhibition is a challenge in its own right. In the case of the Home Army (Armia Krajowa) Museum, the task was even more difficult as we dealt with a difficult part of our history. The multimedia had to become an integral part of the permanent exposition, strengthen its message, mood and character. Our design and execution were subjected to strict assessment of many people and communities.

The General Fieldorf “Nil” Home Army Museum in Kraków is the only institution of this kind in Poland, which disseminates knowledge about the Polish Underground State and its armed forces.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

According to the adopted historical scenario, the modern exhibition has been enriched with multimedia and divided into themed exhibition spaces. Outlined below are what we believe to be the most interesting multimedia systems:

  • a video wall consisting of 46” Hyundai transparent monitors in the entrance area;
  • an interrogation scene created by displaying images on human-shaped projection surfaces, supported by a sound system;
  • rear projections using Casio LED/ laser projectors forming the “Timeline”;
  • projection on a horizontal model synchronised with wall projection, sound and lighting system in the “Operation Tempest” area.

The exhibition’s integral elements also included other systems installed and launched by our people:

  • integrated exhibition management and IT infrastructure system;
  • RFID ticket system;
  • booking and ticket sales system at ticket offices and online;
  • exhibition lighting system;
  • multi-zone sound system.

END RESULT

The exhibition was opened to the public in September 2012. Here you can see not only hundreds of souvenirs and photos, but also touch the hull of Halifax, the British aircraft which was used to provide war supplies to Home Army soldiers. You can see the interior of the V-2 rocket, discovery of which was the greatest success of the Home Army intelligence, and find yourself in a U-boat.
