New 3D tour features on Scunthorpe museum website

North Lincolnshire Museum has launched a new website which features a visual, 3D tour of the impressive Scunthorpe museum in its entirety.

The new tour enables the public to view the museum’s impressive collections from the comfort of their own homes.

The new website ensures that guests can plan their free visits more effectively, find and book the latest events, learn more about the Scunthorpe museum’s exhibitions and much more.

The 3D tour of the museum was uploaded to the website alongside a series of Curator’s Choice videos – where staff members showcase their favourite museum objects.

A visual archive also features 16,000 (and counting) photographs of the ‘rich history’ shown at the Scunthorpe museum.

Cllr John Davison, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities: urban, reported: “Open seven days a week with free admission, North Lincolnshire Museum offers a great day out.

“From informative exhibitions that explore everything from the Jurassic period to Scunthorpe’s proud steel making heritage, there is so much to discover.

“The team works creatively to ensure that the Museum can be enjoyed by the whole family, with hands-on displays, and the popular Dudley’s Den activities keeping younger visitors entertained.

“Their new website will help even more people to discover the Museum and its fantastic resources.”

Two new but temporary exhibitions are currently being held at the Scunthorpe museum until Sunday 6 March.

‘The New Folk’ explores the region’s folkloric past, featuring themes such as rituals, traditions and the supernatural.

Meanwhile, ‘Together, Apart’ examines the experiences local residents faced during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The new North Lincolnshire Museum website was designed and built by multi-award-winning digital agency Joi Polloi.

It was funded by Arts Council England (ACE) through the Humber Museums Partnership, North Lincolnshire Council revealed.
