This past fall we visited New York City and took the kids to see the American Museum of Natural History, among other things… As a family of avid Apple users and iPhone fanatics it came quite naturally to us to immediately check the app store… and can you guess ? Yes, there’s an app for it ! Several in fact and the museum offers them all free of charge for the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad as well.
We used the two apps above to tour the museum before our son found his way to the the dinosaur exhibition. To navigate the museum this way is really great – no more crumbled paper maps, no more getting lost and missing out on half the things you initially wanted to see – instead you get easy to follow museum tours and a massive amount of readily available information right at your fingertips.
This adds a whole new layer to how we experience museums and I can only hope that more museums will soon follow suit !
