Our digital formats offer an opportunity to explore the works of the Kunstpalast outside our premises and opening hours. Ranging from our video formats “Palastgespräch” or audio guides “Kunst zum Hören” to our virtual backgrounds available for download – there is something in store for everyone.
The Kunstpalast App
EXPERIENCE ART IN MULTIPLE DIMENSIONS
Developed in cooperation with our digital partner ERGO, the Kunstpalast app now offers visitors an immersive, enhanced art experience. Available free of charge, the app enables visitors to experience works of art from the collection using augmented reality, combining learning and fun at the same time: while some features provide additional information on individual works, others are designed to amaze with surprising specials.Learn more and download the app

WebXR is the subject of the second digital experiment of nextmuseum.io and Hochschule Düsseldorf – University of Applied Sciences. Thus far, the web standard is at development stage.
The aim is that WebXR will make it possible to use individual XR applications, such as Augmented Reality, via a web browser without running an App. In spring 2022, nextmuseum.io supported a student research effort on WebXR technology by Jana Borchardt (M.Sc. Media and IT), who as part of her thesis made 3D-scans of objects held by the Kunstpalast Düsseldorf and Museum Ulm.
The results can be viewed on the following site, including a browser-based AR application, provided that the device used has a native AR viewer:
