    We here discuss a research project involving the design of a multimodal painting museum installation for children and study this relating to experience and engagement. During an ongoing PhD research examining multimodal interaction with museum installations, an opportunity arose to develop an installation and study the interaction with it. The installation was developed with a focus on tangible media combined with a GUI, spurred by a key interest to examine the interaction, experience and engagement outcomes of tangible media combined with other modalities, in the context of physical interaction with digital information. An overview of the study carried out is presented as well as a number of questions the study explored and initial observations.
