Royal Alberta Museum Image Viewer

We designed and developed a custom interactive image viewer for the Human History hall of the new Royal Alberta Museum. The interactive exhibit is for visitors to view historical imagery, location, and date info on the sensitive subject of residential schools in Alberta. We were honoured for the opportunity to work on this interactive experience that has significance to truth and reconciliation efforts with Indigenous people. The image viewer provides a unique organic viewing experience that is free of fixed positioning and structure. It allows visitors to select thumbnails that expand while organically affecting surrounding images, providing for a fluid natural experience. The image viewer was developed for integration with a central CMS that allows ease of updating the images and text.
