Clark Freeport, Pampanga — A new, interactive and “true-to-life” setting will greet visitors of the Clark Museum after its completion and eyed to open in January 2015.
Gadgets which students and other young visitors enjoy will be in place – they could just tap, swipe, bump or whatever else they can do with their fingers on story lines they want to check-out.
Visitors can also better assess historical features and images of exhibit or experience the Mt. Pinatubo eruption with the 4D theater or a 3D movie with sensor-equipped motion seats, spectacular in-theater effects including wind, bubbles and mist to add a breathtaking fourth dimension.
Architect Lala Rodriguez, a member of the taskforce APEC which handles infrastructure matters related to the 2015 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit said this is going to be the setup of the new Clark Museum that CDC President/CEO Arthur Tugade aspires for the Freeport and wants to showcase to the foreign delegates starting next year.
“The museum itself is going to transform into a modern-day gallery but will maintain its historical quality,’’ said Rodriguez.
The project will cost P28 million which will include the improvement of the museum, construction of the shell of the extended building for the theater and purchase the 4D technology.
The two-story museum will house many of the old photographs, artifacts and replicas among others significant to the history of Clark and of Pampanga – like pictures, scenic dioramas, relics, true-to-life replicas and murals.
