Abstract

The technological advancement of our age has shaped users’ social, economic, physical, and psychological behaviours, creating patterns that have rippled over every sector of social life. The internet and other technological advancement have made life simpler and better for many people. The museum, a cultural institution responsible for preserving and presenting the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of man, has been unyielding to adapting to the march of technology as they appear to be on both sides of the extreme. Not until the focus shifted from object care to incorporating visitor care. Over the years, museum exhibitions have evolved with the advancement of technology. The display of cultural objects now utilise virtual navigation techniques, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and the internet, with an aim of enriching the museum experience for visitors. This trend has influenced museum development and user behaviour. Architectural design plays a vital role in linking interactive learning and traditional displays in heritage museums. This paper focuses on the role of architecture in the use of interactive learning and display technologies in heritage museums, and how this role can accentuate the desire for museum users to have rich experiences.
