Kymenlaakso Museum is a regional museum in southeastern part of Finland. It is in the old harbour area of Kotka city and is housed in the same building as the famous sea museum Wellamo. The fabulous museum building is designed by architect Ilmari Lahdelma. Wellamo opened its doors in 2008 and 118,000 people visited Wellamo in 2018. Of these visitors, 69,000 people viewed the Kymenlaakso Museum exhibitions.
Kymenlaakso Museum needed to show detailed information about an array of museum artefacts in multiple languages including Finnish, English, Russian and Swedish. In addition, staff needed to be able to implement updated content quickly and easily. That's where digital signage came into play.
Museum staff created content on pre-made, customised templates employing the easy-to-use content management tool Bolt Open Source Editor. The museum has around 40 ProDVX monitors up-and-running to exhibit the content. These monitors use WLAN to connect to the desired content.
Using the Editor, updating content is easy. Because of the WLAN connection updates are speedily implemented. This gives the museum a lot of flexibility around exhibition design. As a result, Kymenlaakso Museum now provides its visitors with an even better exhibition experience.
