The Bruce Museum educates visitors about art and natural history in Greenwich, Connecticut.  They offer a live marine animal touch tank, access to meteorites, and other natural wonders. They also are able to give  more detail about their exhibits using a mobile audio guide.

Is an audio guide for you? How easy is it to set up?

We Learned from Volunteer Program Manager/New Media Developer Mary Ann Lendenmann that setup of a mobile audio guide is “no more intimidating than using a phone even for those who fear computers and keyboards”.

She shared, in the webinar, how visitors engage with audio guides and leave having learned something new.
