On November 6, 2014, the Celtic Museum in Hallein celebrated the opening of its new special exhibition called ZEITSPRÜNGE URSPRÜNGE dedicated to the prehistory of Salzburg province.
MARCH GUT had the privilege of taking charge of the grand overall design of this permanent exhibition that occupies the whole groundfloor of the Celtic Museum Hallein. The exhibition is divided into six big subject areas: Space & Time, Man – Environment – Settlement, Faith – Myth – Sacrifice, Power & Lack of Power, Strangers in Salzburg and Here & Beyond. The differentiated exhibition concept allows visitors to decide themselves at which level and to which depth they want to delve into the respective themes, depending on their interests and age group.
The exhibition design strongly follows the principles of archaeological working methods with special consideration for the architecture of the protected museum building. Central to the individual rooms are presentation stages consisting of several levels following the structure of sediment layers. Integracted seating areas invite to lingering and the multi-media format and interactive presentations make for informal and lively instruction.
Selective play with light and shade, with hidden surfaces and transparent show cases provides the most diverse angles of vision and thus an individual, interesting experience. Graphic design: MOOI OG
