Varieties of museum theatres include historical characters, puppetry, movement, music, etc. Visitors can experience the storyline of knowledge about history, science and technology in the theatre which creates immersive environment and engages experiences, such as those in performance, games and simulation. With this kind of experience, knowledge learning in museums becomes more effective and interesting. In addition, it requires multiple disciplines to accomplish the multi-sensory experience provided in the theatre environment. This article focuses on the design process and the system development of the Immersive Theatre in a systematical method. There are three phases in the process: Design, Configuration Negotiation, and Implementation.
