Royal Society Exhibition – London 2015
In Summer 2015, the LBI ArchPro was part of the UK’s most prestigious science exhibition. The institute was showcasing its ground-breaking work at Stonehenge in an exhibit set up together with former partner University of Birmingham in London.
The Summer Science Exhibition is an annual display of the most exciting cutting-edge science and technology in the UK. It is organised by The Royal Society.
Wikinger !- Schallaburg 2015
The LBI ArchPro was an official cooperation-partner of the “VIKINGS!”-exhibition hosted by the Schallaburg castle in Austria from 28th March to 8th November 2015.
The institute contributed to the exhibition with a large-scale milled relief model of the Viking Age site Birka based on airborne laser scanning measurements. High-resolution image content was projected onto the 3D landscape surface showing latest results of geophysical and remote sensing surveys. In the outdoor area of the castle the LBI ArchPro team set up a custom-made exhibition container where visitors could learn more about non-invasive prospection techniques in archaeology and their field application at Viking Age sites like Borre in Southern Norway.
Stonehenge – MAMUZ 2016 & 2017
In 2016, the sensational results of the “Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes project” were presented to the public for the first time in a comprehensive exhibition – curated by LBI ArchPro director Wolfgang Neubauer – at the MAMUZ Museum in Mistelbach, Austria, bringing a record-setting year to the museum with more than 80.000 visitors.
Due to high demand, the exhibition was extended in 2017.
Hauger, Haller, Hav – Viking exhibition, Borre 2018
The permanent exhibition at Borre Midgard Historical Centre in Norway, now the Midgard Vikingsenter, was redesigned in collaboration with LBI ArchPro partners Vfk and 7reasons and opened on April 27th, 2018.
The new exhibition features multimedia visualisations on the local archaeology and history of the Vikings, augmented reality binoculars showing virtual reconstructions of the discovered Iron Age hall buildings in the landscape, a large 3D projection landscape model of the site of Borre and its development through times, an interactive Viking journey for children and grown-ups, a container showcasing the prospection methods together with a magnetometer survey system, as well as an exact copy of the Rök runestone with digital information kiosk.
Schwarzenbach Keltenmuseum 2019
The new exhibition at the open-air museum in Schwarzenbach (Lower Austria) was officially opened on May 30th, 2019. Two new Celtic houses had been setup at the open-air museum; one of the buildings is equipped with a container that features virtual and media installation presenting latest research results from the site. The main installation in this container is a CNC milled landscape model of the Schwarzenbach hill, onto which varying content is projected to tell the story and development of the early settlements on the hill, from the Neolithic to the La Tene epoch.
The Schwarzenbach dissemination project is funded by ecoplus, the County of Lower Austria and the University of Vienna.

Folge der Herde! – Museum Piber 2021
In 2021, the exhibition in the museum of the Lippizaner Stud Piber, Styria, was redesigned in cooperation with the LBI ArchPro. Multimedia installations on the intangible UNESCO cultural heritage of Lipizzaner breeding as well as 3D models of the landscape and historical buildings digitized by the institute tell the long history of the Lipizzaner horses, the stud in Piber and the Spanish riding school in Vienna.
The Federal Stud can also be explored in 3D and VR with a custom-programmed app, which guides visitors through the grounds, interactively explains the exterior and interior architecture, and provides additional information in the exhibition.
