Night at the Museum

A London tech company has been able to recreate 20th Century Fox’s film Night at the Museum in our very own British Museum.

Gamar has launched a mobile and tablet app which brings the museum’s famous galleries to life.

In the Ben Stiller film, Night at the Museum (and its sequel), the night watchman at the Museum of Natural History learns that everything at the museum comes to life after the sun sets.

Gamar’s augmented reality app superimposes graphics when visitors point their devices at different exhibits and artefacts in the museum. It also offers games for younger visitors to play themed around the exhibits.
