MyGuide™ Mobile Application is an on-demand, personal tour guide to ANY exhibit
As a museum patron, one often experiences a sense of loss and disorientation when viewing art or an antique without knowledge of its historical background. Even with a tour guide, the experience is only as good as the guide’s ability to communicate within a restricted time and on limited pieces. We may have hoped for one or more of the following:
- The curator or actual artist by your side, revealing artistic secrets or unusual details.
- An “updated” tour guide – explains historical context and cultural significance for objects discussed.
- Ability to “guide the guide” – access information about pieces of particular interest to you and to enhance your cultural experience.
- More details than provided by the abstracted and limited text accompanying large exhibitions or written on placards supplementing select pieces.
- Tours can be noisy with distractions everywhere – your guide might not speak loudly or clearly – other visitors may chat and disturb your experience – you want to “re-wind” and listen again to that snippet or comment – how about skipping ahead?
- What about botanical gardens? You may be interested to know more about a plant, flower, or tree than the accompanying information, usually limited to name and species.
- How to quickly and easily receive more data, information, interesting facts and videos on the subject you’re interested in, at a pace and time convenient for you?
