This paper reports on the evaluation of the multimedia and interaction design for the exhibition ‘La pietra racconta. Un palazzo da leggere’ (‘Stone with a Story. Reading the Palace’), which opened in the spring of 2017 at the Palazzo Ducale in Urbino. I discuss the forms that the communication model took, using different technologies in different locations, offering visitors the opportunity to perceive the artifacts in a way that would not be possible in a traditional exhibition. The use of advanced technologies along with interaction-design research can truly transform and improve the museum experience, providing better learning and understanding, but only if there is collaboration among professional figures.
