We are preparing for an educational, experience-based arena where you will be surrounded with immersive projections, transporting you further away, closer to, and to deeper depths than you have ever been before. This will help you to see and experience connections that are otherwise difficult to comprehend.
Wisdome incorporates expertise and technology that is only to be found in a few places around the world. High-quality laser projectors, sound systems and impressive processing power transform the latest research data into interactive journeys, where the visitors themselves are in the driving seat as they travel across galaxies, with mind-boggling special effects and zooming in to the very smallest molecular level.
Wisdome will also house exhibitions and laboratories, which will be used to deepen understanding. The launch is planned for 2021–2022.
The Wisdome project has been made possible by generous donations by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Erling-Persson Family Foundation, the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation, the Stora Fund and the forest industry company Stora Enso, which are museum affiliates.
Together with Stora Enso, the National Museum of Science and Technology will build Stockholm’s most innovative wooden building.
A national initiative
Wisdome builds upon the world-leading research within visualisation technology that is being conducted by Visualiseringscenter C and Linköping University. Funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation has now made it possible for the scale of this to be expanded to facilitate a national initiative.
The Wisdome project is based upon a collaboration between Sweden’s five leading science centres – Science Center Malmö Museer, Universeum, Umevatoriet, the National Museum of Science and Technology, and Visualiseringscenter C. The project also incorporates the involvement of universities and research facilities working with research, technology, application and didactics.
