Knights & Castles

Museon, Den Haag

The "Dark Ages" are typically portrayed as a time of war, hunger and disease, while in fact there was a lot of culture, prosperity and scientific development happening as well. Knights and Castles takes a modern look at the middle ages and shows the bright side of this period.

7 professions, 7 themes


7 pavilions each show one character, and guide the visitor through different themes. In the Knight's pavilion you can play a game of virtual jousting, and the craftsman shows you how to hammer a good sword.

The concept has resulted in a a very interactive and playful exhibition in which physical interaction mixes seamlessly with the digital world. At YiPP we made sure every projection and screen breathes the same visual style (and feel) as the entire space.
