HRH The Duke of Gloucester visited Oak House Museum on 8th October 2014 to open the museum\’s new visitor centre. As part of the day\’s events, the Duke visited Creative Good\’s recently completed project – a 17th Century dairy within the Grade 2* Listed Oak House.
Sandwell Council required a working dairy with static interpretation that could be interpreted/demonstrated by access to interpretation within the space as well as through 1st and 2nd person costumed interpretation. We provided a full interpretive design and build service, including specialist research and interpretive planning.
Dairy tools, furniture and cooperage items were manufactured using traditional techniques and are fully functional for use in programmed activities. We produced a simple phone app for visitors to access additional information on site in a fun and engaging way, and its content is duplicated in a leather-bound book to ensure access for all. A dynamically subtitled audio-visual presentation provides insight into the life of a 17th century dairy maid.
