Graz Museum digital
The digital transformation affects all areas of life. The Graz Museum and The Municipal Archive Graz fulfill their memory function firmly anchored in the present. Both institutions have set themselves the task of dealing creatively with these changes as part of their digital strategy, using new technologies, developing digital tools and using them to fulfill their respective core tasks. Digitalisation becomes an integrative part of the work of both institutes and follows the basic values of digital culture: user-oriented, free, open culture, mobile and flexible.

By extending the permanent exhibition The Story of Graz into the digital space, the Graz Museum meets its goal of being a contemporary history museum for all people.
The digital offer follows the exhibition from the supposed first mention of Graz in 1128 to 2003, the year when Graz was European Capital of Culture.

The topotheque is a jointly created and edited online archive as well as a regional historical reference tool. The aim is to preserve and make visible scattered local historically relevant material and knowledge that is kept in private hands. Images, sound recordings, videos, objects, written documents as well as additional information on the memorabilia are digitally preserved in the topotheque for collective memory and joint remembering. The originals remain with the owners, who together with the “topothecaries” compile the knowledge as well as the history of the “objects” and stories around them. All holdings and information on these are linked to each other via keywords, dating and location on the current city map
