Bring the museum to life!

Newsletter April 2016

"Our Real Gold" is the theme of the Museum week 2016 in the Netherlands, where Guide ID's HQ is based. This theme hooks into museums showing off their real showpieces. At Guide ID we truly believe that all visitors should not only get to see the showpieces but also hear the stories behind them. Every museum piece has its own stories, which can be told in many different ways. A great example of this can be heard at the Museum of the twentieth century, in Hoorn, The Netherlands. They have developed a great family quiz on the Podcatcher platform and use it to tell their stories in a very fun and interactive way.
More and more museums are offering the Podcatcher to all visitors via self-service. During our last seminar we highlighted this service and zoomed in on a few live projects. The new DNA tour at the Amsterdam museum was used as the main case study.
We are now working very hard to expand our vision, on getting all your stories told, internationally. Over the coming months we will be working on many international projects and we will keep you up to date.

Best wishes,

The Guide ID Team
