In 2013, Histovery creates the new scenography of the Château de Falaise (Calvados).
Outside the castle, the ‘promenade des HistoCams’ enables you to re-discover the Courtyard of the château as it would have been under the Duke and King Henri II Plantagenêt.
Once inside, the novel ‘HistoPad’ technology allows you to discover all the rooms in the château that have now been completely reconstructed in their 12th Century form – the furniture, decor and artefacts are shown in a highly realistic setting depicting the daily life of the Anglo-Norman kingdom.
This is where William the Conqueror was born in 1027, the duke of Normandy who became King of England. Over the course of your visit, you will be shown several different media types, including 12 short films, to let you directly experience the story of the Anglo-Norman kingdom, and to meet the lineage of the Conqueror. This epic saga starts with the story of how he conquered England, and finishes when Normandy was eventually annexed by the French crown.
In the heart of Paris, on the banks of the Seine, the Conciergerie is the oldest remaining part of the Palais de la Cité, the royal residence of the kings of France and the prison of Marie Antoinette during the French Revolution.
Thanks to augmented reality, 3D graphics, and geolocation, this HistoPad offers 360° reconstructions of the rooms as they were in the Middle Ages and under the French Revolution. For the first time, visitors can dive into different historical periods, from the time of the Capetian Royal Palace to today’s Courthouse.
Since 1882, contemporary celebrities who have typified a period have been commemorated as wax figures and presented to the public.
Grevin Paris visit app, which can be downloaded onto an iOS and Android smartphone, offers an interactive guided visit of statues exposed in this museum. Visitors are invited to scan the face of any character from the museum. Thanks to a facial recognition search engine, the app recognises the person and gives the visitor more information about the celebrity and his or her wax double via a series of linked content: anecdotes, photographs, videos, biographies, etc.
