The opening ceremony of Riga Motor Museum takes place on the 22nd of April, 1989. The date chosen for the opening was rather symbolic – Lenin’s birthday and the day of spring cleaning when in 1976 the Auto Union was recovered from ZiL factory in Moscow. With the opening of the museum the Latvian cultural-educational institutions were enriched with then and now largest car museum in the Baltic States. In 1989, the new museum was visited by 75 000 people, in 1990 the number of visitors reached already 130 000.
The design project envisages the creation of an entirely new innovative Riga Motor Museum exposition with interactive and multimedia solutions, highlighting the museum’s collections and unique exhibits.
Organically integrated in the museum’s exposition the multimedia solutions complement the overall narrative.
They allow the visitor to explore important topics in depth, engage creatively and gain visual enjoyment. Here are some examples – audio guide, augmented reality experience, video mapping show, workstations, visual projections, multimedia solutions, audio experience, hands-on exhibits and games.
