Alternative Artefacts is a tool for creative writing. It presents you three artefacts, randomly chosen from a collections provided by several museums from Germany. This (hopefully) gives you material for a short story that you can write here and share with other people with only a few clicks.

Press R (top right corner) to get a new collection of artefacts.
Clicking an icon displays information about that artefact.

This tool/game was created by Friedrich 'ratrogue' Hanisch in July 2021, for the Museums Game Jam at the A MAZE 2021. Currently it uses materials of the following museums:

  • German Maritime Museum – Leibniz Institute for Maritime History, Bremerhaven
  • Germanisches Nationalmuseum – Leibniz Research Museum of Cultural History, Nuremberg
  • Deutsches Museum, Munich
