History of Switzerland
National Museum Zurich

550 years of Swiss history is reflected on in the new permanent exhibition. Not only the past is put on stage, but also contemporary themes such as robotics, climate change and migration.

Tweaklab was commissioned with the entire media technical planning, programming and installation of the media stations in the exhibition rooms of the 15th – 20th century, in close cooperation with Claudiabasel, who developed the screen design.

The elegant and shapely metal steles with Tweaklab handsets and language selection buttons, as well as the colourful frames with matching seats for the touch screen stations were designed and realised together with the scenographer.
"Tell2, the three gentlemen of the Rütli oath or other Swiss founder pioneers appear in the media station "Gründungslegenden" (Legendary Founders). The respective figures appear above a facsimile edition of the "White Book of Sarnen" - a Pepper's Ghost application. It was planned, implemented in terms of graphics, programmed and installed by us.

iPads are available to call up information on historically relevant voting topics. Ballot posters in favour and against the vote appear simultaneously on two built-in monitors in portrait format, and their results are displayed as well.
