Open Museum – Virtual Museum


The Wilanów Palace Museum has launched a programme to popularise research findings through short articles provided in its knowledge resource available on Access to this knowledge is facilitated by our search engine and a dictionary of tags. Our efforts under the “Open Museum” project it has been possible to acquire new articles for this open Old-Polish culture and history database and have a large portion of popular-science content translated into English and made accessible.

A considerable expansion of content has necessitated a new arrangement of resources, which in principle must be easily accessible. EU support has also enabled upgrading the online encyclopaedia, in particular by creating a new functional structure and visual form of “The Passage to Knowledge” associated with the museum’s vortal. Developing new narrations was an important task which involved topic-based tours for audio guides, their translation into foreign languages and making them available to the public on mobile devices. Producing and promoting two documentary films on the history of the Palace and its residence, and organising a conference, are further elements in the project aimed at the extensive popularisation of the museum’s collections as a source of knowledge on Old-Polish history and culture.
