Ethnographic Museum Zagreb Culture and Arts

Multimedia presentation of the exhibition A Fistful of Beard

The Ethnographic Museum is an institution open to the general public whose main goal is to preserve ethnographic heritage and cultural identities and to understand the world in which we live. The main tasks of the museum are the systematic collection of cultural objects, their preservation, museological processing, professional and scientific study and exhibition. In achieving its goals, the Museum communicates with visitors, institutions, interested communities and users and encourages the acceptance of ethnology as a science of people and their culture.

An exhibition entitled "A Fistful of Beards" was opened at the Ethnographic Museum on the World Men's Beard Day. The exhibition showed visitors the appearance of the interior of the old Zagreb barber shop as it was at the end of the 19th and during the 20th century, and the way of shaving as it was once practiced. Barbershops used to be the center of social life for modern men where they would always chat about different topics and share a laugh or two. At the opening, visitors also had the opportunity to see live the traditional way of shaving as practiced in the last century.


The Ethnographic Museum decided to complete the presentation of its exhibition A Fistful of Beard with multimedia content and interaction. The aim of the project is to offer visitors the opportunity to explore the exhibition, view digital publications, and try various entertaining content.


Deliver a quality visually impressive, and at the same time cost-effective solution for a multimedia presentation that will be well noticed and accepted by visitors of the Ethnographic Museum.

Our approach

The solution needed to be equipped with a package of centrally managed multimedia applications, and in the creative part of the project it was necessary to study exhibition topics, develop visual content and design user interfaces.


With the application of our products: PandoPad® Manager, PandoPad® Applications and PandoPad® FLOOR units, all interactive services necessary for informing and presenting the exhibition A Fistful of Beard have been realized. Set of the museum is designed with special visual identity of the exhibition, whose graphic elements were used in the preparation of interactive applications.
