Blenheim Palace: Churchill Digital Exhibition
Virtual Museum; Churchill at Blenheim
Blenheim Palace is a country house in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, built between 1705 and 1722, It is one of England’s largest houses and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
It is unique in its combined use as a family home, mausoleum and national monument. The palace is notable as the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill.
ATS was invited to produce a “virtual museum” to complement the new Churchill exhibition at Blenheim Palace and the client were keen that the website could be enjoyed by both those who had attended the exhibition in person and those who could not. To achieve this, ATS included the following:
- Engaging videos that tell the story of Churchill’s life at the palace through dramatisation, exclusive to the website
- Games and interactives that are also exclusive to the website
- ‘Explore the Collection objects’ for those who were unable to attend the exhibition, or those who wanted to re-visit the information
