We produced the ARCHAEORAMA project for the Pfahlbaumuseum Unteruhldingen. The Pfahlbauten Unteruhldingen, the oldest archaeological open-air museum in Germany, offers a journey through 10,000 years of history. Visitors can relax and absorb the impressions of the newly opened museum hall showcasing original artifacts before entering the ARCHAEORAMA multimedia show. This show allows participants to embark on a virtual dive to the stilt houses in Lake Constance.

The museum provides a unique opportunity to explore Stone and Bronze Age history through immersive VR technology. After the virtual experience, visitors can explore reconstructed villages from these eras, complete with stunning lake panoramas. The Stone Age Parcours, equipped with an interactive cinema, offers insights into ancient construction techniques demonstrated by experimental archaeologists. Visitors can end their tour by discovering the first two stilt houses from 1922 and a special exhibition about the museum’s beginnings.

The ARCHAEORAMA multimedia show reveals the invisible underwater heritage of the stilt houses. In a 360-degree panoramic cinema, guests get fascinating insights into the hidden underwater world of Lake Constance, including a virtual stilt field and the methods used by underwater archaeologists to uncover the treasures of the stilt house builders.

Since its opening in May 2013, ARCHAEORAMA has attracted over one million visitors, underscoring its success in bringing history to life for a broad audience.

Additionally, the new museum building was inaugurated on June 20, 2024. This modern facility, designed to enhance the visitor experience, continues to draw significant crowds, contributing to the museum’s reputation as one of the most visited archaeological exhibitions in Germany.
