Bytown Museum

A Feasible Accessibility Solution

At the request of the Bytown Museum, we embarked on a mission to bring accessibility and digital exploration of Ottawa’s oldest stone building and its story to a wider audience. Their primary focus was to bridge the gap for individuals with physical disabilities, offering them access to the museum’s third floor from the second.

The 3D Matterport virtual tour is a gateway for anyone, anywhere to step inside the museum and immerse themselves in its rich history. Today, the museum leverages our service to preserve its exhibits in immersive 3D virtual tours, ensuring these invaluable artefacts are accessible for education even in storage.

In addition, these tours serve as a powerful tool for promoting their rental spaces.

Matterport 3D Tour
Using the Matterport Pro2, the immersive 3D virtual tour enables anyone to explore the Bytown Museum online giving them the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the space before visiting in person. For those with accessibility limitations, they can use the 3D tour to access areas/levels they wouldn't otherwise be able to experience online or at the in-person kiosk on site. The 3D virtual tour is also a great way to document and preserve the museum in a digital format.
Google Street View
The scan was uploaded to the Google Maps platform as a Google Street View Trusted tour. These 360 images are prioritized by Google and complement the Bytown Museum's Google My Business profile.
4K And Panoramic Images
We produced 4k images for the heritage building, giving them high-quality content of their space in its' as-is condition.
