We’re pleased to announce that alongside our partners Aardman and the University of Bristol, we have been successful in winning funding for a 12 month project called “The Hidden Museum” as part of the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts. Check back regularly to hear how the project is progressing.
This project will and test a museum multitool app that makes family and group visits to Bristol museums more fun and playful. The app will promote group interaction directly with the museum, its displays and hidden treasures. The focus is on improving visitor experience in museums and galleries and many of these cite engagement with families as a key goal. New location aware digital technologies such as iBeacons can be used to explore, improve and promote more effective visitor engagement and to encourage higher levels of intergenerational or group activity and learning.
