MUSE: An interactive online museum visit experience
MUSE is an online platform that provides museum enthusiasts unable to visit museums in-person with an alternative means of museum visiting experience.
This project was inspired by the lock down of most cities — which causes the temporary close down of many museums — under the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020.

Modern museums usually have a website as a digital showcase of artworks and exhibitions. However, the actual interaction with the artifacts is only available at the museums, and current websites fail to provide this interactive and accessible experience for remote visitors. Our project aims to provide museum enthusiasts who are not able to visit museums in person with an alternative means of museum visiting experience. We’ll focus on museums based in Seattle, especially the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPop) as it is more convenient for us to recruit users during quarantine.
How can we transform the visiting experience of cultural museums in Seattle into an interactive online platform?
