Lapworth Museum of Geology, University of Birmingham
Stage 1 HLF Submission
The Lapworth Museum of Geology, located on the campus of the University of Birmingham, appointed RFA provide interpretive exhibition design input to support a Heritage Lottery Fund first round application.
A review of the existing displays by RFA concluded that the ‘feel’ of the Edwardian museum should be preserved and that the displays should be enhanced using up-to-date techniques. New, interactive displays should be included: to create ‘wow’ experiences; to show more of the collections in an enlightening and engaging way; and to link the Museum with related departments of the University (by showcasing the research being undertaken).
