A multi-layered virtual exhibition of Montreal General Hospital's 200-year history
The Montreal General Hospital 200th Anniversary Exhibition is a virtual retrospective of the first English medical institution in Montreal, spanning over the last two centuries. This project was initiated by the McGill University Health Center and the Montreal General Hospital Foundation.
Our team worked closely with the MGH team, in order to design and program a virtual exhibit of more than 200 artifacts throughout 4 chapters and 47 sub-chapters, using a fully self-manageable multi-level system of tags and categories. Each artifact had to include a caption and the visuals needed to align in order to give a well-rounded and immersive experience.
We created a chapter map that guides the user through each chapter, allowing them to explore each and every one.
On the technical side of things, we made sure the platform was robust and optimized. We ensured that the server could handle a large influx of traffic as well.
To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Montreal General Hospital, the MUHC and the MGH Foundation joined forces and gathered a large collection of artifacts into an exhibition that expands across four Eras of History, honoring the hospital’s history.
Due to COVID-19, the exhibition had to be rethought as an online experience. Our goal was to make sure that the user’s visit was as smooth and captivating as possible while they explored this great content.
Historians have been working on this project for the past 5 years, finding and studying the many artifacts that have shaped history. When the pandemic struck, the client was worried that this hard work would go unnoticed. It became crucial to make sure that all of it would be presented in a beautiful and seamless way, digitally.
The client is very happy with the result and loves that this online exhibition will exist for years to come, as opposed to being displayed temporarily on the walls of the hospital.
