Client: Southampton City Council

Project: Gateway to the World, Heritage Lottery funded

Collaborators: Urban Salon (Design), Newagle Productions (Media), Woods McGrath (Graphics), Paragon (Interactives)

Southampton City Council wanted to create a new set of museum galleries on the former old law courts and town hall site. The Gateway gallery tells the story of Southampton as port city – a point of arrival and departure over many centuries.


Working with a team of academic consultants and community partners, TGAC provided full interpretive planning, interactive development and scripting.


The gallery delivers a set of encounters with real Southampton people from the past, Visitors engage with the personal stories of a Saxon princess, a Roman trader, a Medieval merchant and many more.
