Often it is a collection of items united by one theme, lying on display behind the glass. You cannot say the same about our museum. It is different. It is interactive. It is difficult to say what it resembles most, a museum in its conventional meaning or a theme park. The exposition imparts the information in a multitude of ways. It is multifaceted. It engulfs you, enters your mind and interacts with almost every single of your sense organs. And it is possible thanks to the cutting-edge audio-visual and computer technologies.В чем-то все музеи очень похожи друг на друга. Часто это объединенное по тому или иному принципу собрание вещей и предметов на витринах под стеклом. О нашем музее этого сказать нельзя. Он другой. Он интерактивен. Сложно определить, на что он больше похож — на музей как таковой или на парк развлечений. Вся информация, которую призвана донести до посетителей экспозиция, имеет разные способы подачи. Она объемна. Она обступает людей, проникает в их сознание, воздействует почти на все органы чувств. Это стало возможно благодаря использованию современных компьютерных и аудиовизуальных технологий. История расселения евреев по миру подана в виде большой интерактивной карты. Огромные витрины, на которые проецируются уникальные фильмы и фотографии, воссоздают образ типичного местечка XVIII — начала XX веков. Аудиоэффекты органично дополняют визуальный ряд и создают эффект присутствия. Архитектурные конструкции спроектированы таким образом, что дополняют экспозицию и усиливают вовлеченность. Давайте подробнее остановимся на каждом из пунктов. « less
