The American Association of Museums has awarded a prestigious MUSE prize to The City of Ruins, a digital reconstruction of what war-ravaged Warsaw looked like in 1945. The award was announced at the association’s annual meeting in Houston, Texas, on May 22. The City of Ruins received the silver award in the audio/visual category. The City of Ruins was commissioned by the Warsaw Uprising Museum for use as an exhibit and was made by Platige Image. This is the first ever digital reconstruction of the city and it was based on historical documents. Warsaw is shown as it was in the spring of 1945, several months after the uprising by Poles against the city’s Nazi occupiers had been quashed. The Nazi occupation had not long ended and the Soviet occupation had just begun.

The MUSE Awards were instituted to highlight projects that make use of new technology, that attempt to improve the content and enhance the emotional aspects of exhibitions, and that interact with the viewer. Projects from all over the world are among the winners.

The American Association of Museums was founded in 1906 to bring together museums and educational institutions. The association’s membership currently numbers 3,000 institutions and 15,000 directors, academics and curators.
