This paper presents FSJ-3D printing + mixed media installation (FSJ-3D P + MI), a design combining 3D printed models, video-mapping, immersive audiovisual scenography and digital heritage storytelling. The installation is part of the Virtual Journey through the history of Fort Saint Jean (VJ-FSJ) Project, a permanent digital heritage exhibit, namely Virtual Journey through the history of Fort Saint Jean, a historical site in Marseille, to be open at the Musée des Civilisations de L’Europe et de la Méditerranée (MuCEM) in France, as part of the planned activities of the Center of Interpretation of the history of the FSJ in France.
