The $14.3 million Queensland Museum refurbishment program was undertaken in conjunction with maintenance works and was designed to enhance access for visitors with a new light-filled entry space on Grey Street, a new internal lift, replacement of escalators and new stairs between gallery levels (Cultural Centre South Bank, 2011).
As a part of the refurbishment, Queensland Museum wanted to improve the wayfinding and internal promotional capabilities of the museum. With a new layout and new exhibitions scheduled, the Queensland Museum had a unique opportunity to capitalise on new technologies and implement a state of the art digital signage system.
Queensland Museum wanted the digital signage system to:
- display wayfinding information
- display admission pricing
- promote upcoming and current events
- acknowledge the Museum's benefactors
After preliminary research, Queensland Museum approached Madison Technologies to propose and deliver a digital signage solution that would meet its requirements.
