Creating digital storytelling experiences for your heritage venue

Museums visitors are now much more willing to use their phones to access digital content to enhance their visitor experience. The technology to deliver this can be cheap and easy: a simple mobile-optimised website will do the job. But creating engaging content that’s tailored to visitor needs and attention patterns is challenging. Brighton and Hove Museums worked with volunteers to create a new audio guide for Preston Manor and a digital storytelling experiment in Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
