Through interactive technology, visitors will have the opportunity to meet characters that could have lived in the house over the last 500 years.

In partnership with the museum volunteers at the Bishops’ House, designer and PhD candidate Caroline Claisse has co-created an interactive installation where museum visitors will experience the house in new ways. This exhibition builds on the success of Curious House (2016)¬†where artists created engaging new work in response to the house, its association, and collection.

The exhibition Curious House 2017 was funded by the Cultural, Communication and Computing Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University. A huge special thanks to the following people for their incredible support and help with the exhibition:

  • Dr Mark Marshall, Nick Dulake and Chris Amner from Sheffield Hallam University for their great advice, support and help in programming and building the interactive installation.
  • The museum volunteers and Committee at Bishops’ House for their creative contribution and support in developing the installation. Particularly, Jan & Wes Hedge, Richard Clark and Neve & Sam Levitt who specially recorded content for the work.
  • Museums Sheffield for their time and support in advising and selecting artefacts from the museum collection.
