Museum für Archäologie, Herne

Museum of Archaeology

With its unique concept and design, the National Museum of Westphalia is one of the most modern archaeological museums in Europe. Located In the underground exhibition hall, a so-called excavation landscape is built on the model of an archaeological dig. It tells the story of the people of Westphalia - from the first traces 250,000 years ago until today.

As part of the special exhibition "Hilm Boeckmann - Retrospective", 2.5 m, 3 m and 3.5 m high Mila-wall modules create an attractive interior. This temporary exhibition spaces were the basis for an impressive demonstration of the reverberation reduction realized with acoustic walls from the Mila-wall Acoustic series.  In a simulation of the Fraunhofer IBP, normal Mila-wall partitions were compared with Mila-wall Acoustic. The noise reduction is clearly audible. Results can be found in the graphs below. An acoustic comparison is available on the product site of the acoustic wall and in the video below.

Outcome of the simulation

Reverberation time

The Fraunhofer IBP calculated computer simulated reverberation time in the exhibition hall of the Museum of Archaeology Herne:

Sound Pressure Level

The Fraunhofer IBP calculated computer simulated sound pressure levels in the exhibition hall of the Museum of Archaeology Herne.

An acoustic comparison is on the product site of the acoustic wall.
