MUFC Museum – Munich Air Disaster

To mark the 60th anniversary of the tragic Munich Air Disaster, we worked with the Manchester United Museum to retell a story that will be forever remembered with great sadness.

The Museum had created a powerful exhibition paying homage to the stories of the people who were onboard that fateful flight on 6 February 1958. But to give visitors a deeper understanding of what happened, I worked with the team to add an interactive element to the display.

The interactive is split into three sections: the players and staff, the aftermath, and the disaster. After the initial animated attractor screen giving an overview of the disaster, an interface containing realistic-looking documents, photos and videos relating to the investigation, invites users to piece together the story for themselves. This was combined with a series of automated animations and a timeline using the aircraft radio transcript to help tell one of the most powerful stories in sporting history.
