Technology is a powerful storytelling vessel, and museums large and small are jumping aboard the tech-wave to communicate their stories and educational content. But, there is a common misconception that innovative digital solutions are exclusively reserved for the big and mighty – that is, organizations willing and able to invest tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars into the development and implementation of, say, a new app, or digital experience. We’re here to debunk this myth. Here, we’ll highlight just how museums with tight budgets and small staffs have worked with Cuseum to develop sustainable, creative, digital solutions to drive visitor engagement as well as cut costs, save time with their membership programs.
Lyman Allyn Art Museum has launched their new mobile app with Cuseum in conjunction with the opening of the permanent collection American Perspectives! The app features tours of the galleries, as well as additional information on the works of art, a map of the museum, and the ability to comment on, share, and save your favorite works of art! It also makes use of location-based notifications, which makes it easier than easy to enjoy content.
