Open House: If These Walls Could Talk is a highly interactive exhibit documenting the 150 year history of a real St. Paul residence. Each room in the house represents a different era in time. Visitors are encouraged to explore and, in doing so, discover stories from some of the 50 plus families who at one time occupied the house. Many of the multimedia elements are triggered through tangible interfaces and are often emulating era-appropriate technology, such as the lantern slide in the 1880's parlor.
