A wide range of monitors from 10" to 82" with several 55" transparent screens integrated in front of showcases.
Multiple video projections of all formats from wide to ultra short focal length.
An audio-guided tour synchronized with the various shows sequences. 
A collective digital games with 20 terminal's monitors including a rendering on large screen projection.Multiple sensors.
The museum is fully automated 24/7.

The city wanted to see the birth of a narrative in an extremely immersive place, from the first beginnings of images (and in particular the attempts at movement in the caves of Lascaux and Chauvet) to the 3D delusions that are now invading our screens, the whole history of animation. She also wanted a much higher attendance, in the order of 200/250,000 visitors per year.

This engaging project was abandoned for political reasons and a lack of ambition on the part of the local authorities at the APS phase.
