Fiskars Village and museum area in Raseborg, Finland, have started their summer season once again. For Fiskars Village is home for over 500 people besides being a tourist sighting, they wanted to tell the Village visitors more about the buildings, the people, and the history of the area.
They decided to take their storytelling to another level, and AR was their weapon of choice. Together, we created the Fiskars Village Heritage Walk.

The Fiskars Village Heritage Walk was created with AR video content in four guide signs around Fiskars Village. The videos take the visitors back to the 19th century Fiskars Village.
The objective of creating AR content into the guide signs was to give more information about the Village buildings and its history and people to the visitors.
Karin von Julin lived in the Manor in Fiskars Village. She worked as her father's, Albert von Julin's, secretary among many other things. She was also known for her ongoing work on behalf of the Village. For example, she started a fund-raising, which resulted in the Assembly Hall building in 1896.
The story of Fiskars Village now comes alive with photographer Karin.
