Abstract

Energise is one of ten award-winning new galleries at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. Aimed at a family audience, it explores the sources, generation, distribution and use of energy and questions how science and technology may transform how we power our lives in the future. This short case-study account details three objects in Energise around which we adopted a focus on personal stories that tell us about the experiences of users and developers.
