Optimised to run on desktop, mobile and now Google Cardboard, the solution is a digital museum guide and research tool. The apps allow users to not only experience the architecture of the museum, but also explore the pre-eminent collection of Mayan artefacts in 3D, with options to view in-depth catalogue information and 3D print.
The new Museo Maya de América is among the most ambitious cultural projects under development in Central America and is planned to house one of the world’s most significant collections of objects, artefacts, artworks, textiles and knowledge relating to the history and culture of the Mayan Civilisation.
Located on the northern edge of L’Aurora Park in Guatemala City, the new museum building will form the culmination of a cultural axis that includes the Guatemalan Museum of Contemporary Art and the Children’s Museum. This dense cluster of cultural institutions, in tandem with the large open spaces of the adjacent park will become a focal point for tourists and residents alike.
