The Story of Gardening experience centre is a thoughtfully designed and technologically innovative exploration of gardens and their impact on culture, from courtyards of the ancient world to the hanging gardens of today’s megacities. Locatify worked closely with digital concept designers Ijsfontein, interdisciplinary design masters Kossman De Jong, and design and construction firm Kloosterboer Decor to help bring the experience to life.
The museum sits on a stunning historical section surrounded by woodland in Somerset, England, the museum combines cutting edge technologies such as Ultra-wideband (UWB) Indoor Positioning and Virtual Reality to deliver a unique visitor experience.
“The Locatify UWB indoor positioning complements the interactive, immersive, full-sensory experience of the Newt’s ‘Story of Gardening’. Being prompted by the tablet as one enters a different room or walks up to an exhibit gives a true sense of connectedness with the space and the exhibits.” – Arthur Cole, Head of Programmes for the Visitor Attraction, The Newt in Somerset.
