About Us

Every day we speak with people like you about your goals and challenges to increase revenue and add visitors in a competitive market. They tell us that finding a strategic approach to overcoming this can be difficult. That’s why we started Antenna LAB.

LAB exists to help you deal with the problems you may be facing as a business, or in delivering on your mission, from understanding and adopting new technology; to giving your visitors what they really want; and identifying and working towards a shared goal.

Drawing on Antenna International’s 20 years of experience in the museum sector, and a unique group of highly talented and motivated people who all love museums and attractions, LAB defines itself with its openness and flexibility. What sets us apart from other organisations is that we’re not out to sell you a product, but to find the best outcome for everyone involved.

My enduring cultural memory: Sitting on the wooden bench inside Christopher Wren's 'Great Model' for St Paul's Cathedral. It transported me to the 1670s.
I'm excited about: Aha! moments. Art. Museums. Ruins. History. New ideas. Technology. Narrative. Language. Asking, 'What if…?'

My enduring cultural memory: Backpacking through Europe for three months and seeing every possible kind of cultural site. Also unearthing an Anglo-Saxon skeleton...that's about as hands-on as learning gets.
I'm excited about: Using technology to bring the past to life and to help people understand and connect with places in a new way.
