McCord Museum Mobile Apps
MTL Urban Museum
Gold Award Winner in the category Multimédi'Art Interactif at the International Audiovisual Festival on Museums and Heritage (FIAMP) held in Montreal in October 2012. This international competition rewards the best achievements of museums making use of new image and sound technologies.
For its new permanent exhibition, Montreal - Points of View, the McCord Museum is launching an avant-garde application using augmented reality technology -- another way to discover Montreal and revisit the places where history was made! Visitors are invited to travel through time while keeping an eye on the present.
Available for free on the App Store, Urban Museum MTL provides a unique way to experience emblematic Montreal locations: Sainte-Catherine and Sherbrooke streets, Old Montreal, Mount Royal Park and McGill University campus. The superimposition of a historic image with a present-day point of view on urban life provides two visions of each place -- yesterday's and today's.
Some 150 pictures from the McCord Museum's Notman Photographic Archives will help immerse you in Montreal's past! Look for the marks on the ground to help position yourself as precisely as possible. A first in Canada!
