Expedition Online: A digital journey through natural history collections

42 million objects in our vast natural history collection and only a few thousand to be admired in our museum. To make the whole collection accessible to our museum audience, we are building Expedition Online. Through a partnership between Naturalis, Natuurhistorisch Museum Rotterdam, Q42 (internet bureau) and Fabrique (design studio), each party’s expertise is used to allow visitors to explore and research objects and stories based on their own interests, but also to give them the opportunity to create their own story.

In this session, we share how we have jointly tackled the technical, accessibility, design and educational challenges.
