Hong Kong Maritime Museum

  • A nautical chart has been created into a 200 sq meter carpet at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum.  This carpet allows visitors to interact on a another level with the Harbor exhibit.  I think there’s a TCM field trip to be had!

    “As the visitors walked through the museum they pointed at the carpet illustrating the sea chart and talked about what they saw on it. They didn’t just walk on the carpet – they had an additional experience from the expression of the carpet. Not only does the carpet have an entertaining value – it also contains an informative value,” says Signe Cheung Tørsleff.
