Abstract. Museum conservators and researchers often take multi-spectral captures of the paintings they study, commonly using x-ray, infrared and ultraviolet equipment. Usually these captures are not accessible to the museum visitor, even though they offer valuable information about the painting. Since 2009 the AR Lab has been developing installations which allow museum visitors to explore these special captures in an user-friendly and playful way. This article describes and comments on the different phases this project went through, and gives a preview of our latest augmented reality application.
