Fort Liezele Ocular 9

Fort Liezele is the best-preserved concrete armoured fort in the belt of Antwerp forts. The museum in the fort was renewed and we were in charge of the multimedia.

When you walk into the museum, you immediately get catapulted back in time. Inside the World War I fort, you'll discover more about life in Liezele during the war through an interactive tour. Guide-ID's audio guides accompany you throughout the visit and are available in several languages.

Throughout the different rooms in the fort, you'll meet a number of protagonists who will share their stories with you. Danse La Pluie provided the captivating videos that remain in your head, especially since the characters look you straight in the eye.

As you explore, you discover all about the fort at Liezele. In the dome, for example, you'll find VR glasses that show how the cannon used to work and in one of the rooms you can play interactive games to protect the fort.

Audio also plays an important part in the museum, at a certain point you can hear soldiers marching as they did during the war.

In another room, a video plays in sync on different screens which creates a unique effect.

Museum Fort Liezele has been reopened since the 1st of May 2023 so discover the interactive multimedia yourself during a visit!
