In the last few years, the Vasa Museum has been engaged in two major research projects, about the interior furnishings of the cabins in the stern (the only surviving royal interior from the time of Gustav Adolf) and the clothing of the crew (the largest collection of ordinary people’s clothing from before 1700 in northern Europe). Director of Research Fred Hocker will present some of the findings of these projects together with plans for experimental reconstructions of the finds.
- Interactivity and interpretation for all ages and nationalities - Vasas exhibitions
The changing digital habits and behaviors of the outside world put pressure on exhibitions and public environments, also for the Vasa Museum. Take part in a digital work-in-progress that needs to take into account the large numbers of visitors as well as good flows through the house.
