As the world develops, visits to the museum are also changing as technology is more frequently used to showcase the content displayed in the museums. The goal of visiting a museum is often to provide the visitor with an experience and a glimpse into some other life or time in history. In this exhibition, different ideas of how technology can be integrated into museum exhibits are explored. The exhibition also showcases touch-free technology, which aims to address the post pandemic world situation, and ensure a safe museum experience for visitors.

The exhibition has been developed as part of the Muittut, Muitalusat, The Story of the Sámi by the Sámi - project, in which new technology for Sámi museums has also been developed in collaboration. Partners in the project were the The Sámi Museum and Northern Lapland Nature Centre from Inari, Saemien Sijte from Norway as well as Ájtte-museum and Luleå University of Technology from Sweden. The goal of the project was to develop a new "Sámi museum language" for the museums and to help ensure the continuation of local heritage to the upcoming generations. For this exhibition, the content has been mostly changed to fit the theme of Northern nature, but the focus is on usable and interactive technology. The exhibition features e.g. a 3D model of a Sámi horn hat belonging to the Siida’s collections, which was digitized during the project. The exhibition has been built by the Lapland User Experience Research Group (LUX).
