Sammanfattning: Touching history – to create interesting entrances is a thesis in the field of information design focusing on spatial design. Many museum experiences have been characterized by the gaze. Different barriers in forms of showcases, ropes and exhortations have made the visitor into an observer. With the digitalization this has become even more noticeable. But humans, no matter how young or old, are still physical beings with different senses which offer different ways to experience the world, also in regards of museum experiences. The purpose of this study is to investigate the haptic experience of an object as an information channel in exhibitions. This has been done to investigate if information that is communicated in the interaction between the body and the object has any significance for children’s interest in history.  The scientific theoretical basis for the study focuses, among other things, on the correlation between cognition, emotion and the physical body. This means theories in embodied cognition and haptic perception and previous research about sensory experiences in museums. The purpose for the methodological work has been to thoroughly explore the subject. The work includes interviews through video call, telephone and e-mail with persons working in the museum sector. This to establish the study firmly into the field it aims to explore, and from a museum perspective receive experiences and important inputs. Moreover different workshops and one prototype test have been conducted, this to explore and get an understanding of the subject from the users perspective and to meet their needs. The workshops and the prototype test have been conducted in collaboration with school classes.  With support from theories, previous research and methodological work a design has been created that aims to provide and make haptic experiences available in an exhibition context. This to arouse interest in children, so that the interest works as an entrance in regards to wanting to know more about history.
