The Natural Heritage of Bulgaria - Innovative Approaches for the Presentation of Natural Samples

The project is approved by the Ministry of Culture and includes four main objectives:

Dioramic representation of natural habitats with scientific credibility.
Digital representation of natural wealth, development of online content on the website of the Natural Science Museum – Cherni Osam.
Innovative presentation of the visitor experience at the Natural Science Museum – Cherni Osam.
Expanding the museum’s educational activities to include relevant environmental topics.

The planned activities address a wide range of target groups – families with children, student groups and both traditional museum visitors and visitors seeking a contemporary museum experience. Activities focus on attracting youth audiences, high school students and providing a meaningful experience for people with visual impairments.

The results of the Project build on the existing museum exhibition in the following areas :

  • Diorama representation of natural habitats with scientific credibility.
  • Digital representation of natural heritage, through the content of the Natural Science Museum website. https://nsmus.com/3d-razhodka/
  • New presentation for a better visitor experience at the Natural Science Museum – Cherni Osam.
  • Expanding the museum’s educational activities with current conservation topics.Innovative approaches to presenting natural specimens in the museum have been created that include scientific value, high realism, and diverse services. Improved visitor awareness of natural habitats and species.

Mock-ups of natural habitats in the museum have been constructed, highlighting the regional character and drawing attention to animal life in the Midlands. Biodegradable material was used, and 3D photography accentuated the bear habitat.

An innovative virtual walk-through was created with 3D footage of the museum and surrounding scenery, enhancing the museum’s online presence. Visitors are able to immerse themselves in nature through 3D imagery and learn about habitats and life in the wild.

Virtual guided tours, animal sounds, and annotations have been developed for the visually impaired, providing appropriate access and presentation of the museum’s exhibits. A system with abbreviated texts, Braille translations and a sound system has been created, enhancing the experience for visually impaired visitors.
