Case Study: Four locations, one national museum – innovative solutions for rich exhibition and event program and 870,000 collection objects
With Pimcore, the Swiss National Museum combines its digital needs from three museums, the collection center and over 870,000 collection objects.
The Swiss National Museum comprises the National Museum in Zurich, the Forum of Swiss History in Schwyz, the Château de Prangins and the Affoltern am Albis Collection Center. With Pimcore, not only the overarching website of the National Museum but also the platforms of the respective houses were completely redeveloped and technically implemented.

The initial situation
The solution with Pimcore
For the integration of the new websites into the extensive services of the Swiss National Museum, DACHCOM has created the technical requirements for various interfaces. For example, data is transferred to several external tourism and culture portals. In the other direction, articles from the blog and data for job advertisements from the recruitment software are integrated into Pimcore. A selection from the collection of around 870,000 objects, as well as the over 7,000 events can be called up in a flash thanks to the implemented Dynamic Search. The search function also includes all exhibitions, events, pages, people, blog posts, media releases and public documents of the Swiss National Museum. For the automatic data migration into the museum app with integrated virtual museum tours, a modern and flexible GraphQL interface was implemented with the DataHub.
