About the Joint Project
museum4punkt0 links seven cultural institutions
nationwide in a joint project. In close exchange, we are testing and
evaluating innovative applications of digital technologies in museums.
The six partners involved in museum4punkt0 reflect
the wide spectrum of museums in Germany: We are a group of cultural
institutions of various sizes and different profile. Our collections
represent facets of the history of art, culture, as well as nature
studies, cover aspects of intangible cultural heritage and illuminate
the history of science and technology.
Our goal is to arouse people’s curiosity about
museums as spaces for discovery and experience, encouraging their
exploration of museum-based subjects and providing opportunities for
What we do
In six sub-projects, we develop digital prototypes
to facilitate new forms of communication, participation, education, and
knowledge transfer in museums.
museum4punkt0 also intends to support the
enhancement of digital expertise across institutional boundaries. With
this in mind, in this joint project we maintain close communication
about requirements, approaches to implementation, and standards when
developing digital applications.
