We’ve never been more passionate about helping cultural institutions push the envelope with new and immersive experiences. Today, Cuseum is pleased to announce a new feature and support Apple’s ARKit to help craft new ways of delivering experiences for museum visitors.
Augmented reality, the combination of real and computer-generated worlds viewed through your phone, is popping up wherever you look; in social media, advertising, games, etc! As a new, powerful tool for artistic creation and an innovative method of audience engagement, AR has the potential to revolutionize the way we experience art, and it was only a matter of time before AR entered the museum space. Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) has been at the forefront of the movement to bring AR into museums, and in December 2017, in partnership with Cuseum, they launched the first art exhibit using Apple’s ARKit.
When you think about the push to be eco-friendly and how you can help, what comes to mind? Using fewer to-go cups? Opting for paper over plastic grocery bags? Turning the lights off when you leave the room? You may never have considered your organization’s membership cards when you think of things that could be greener! But when it comes to the environment, every little bit counts, and switching out your plastic or paper membership cards for something with no environmental impact will not only save your organization time and money, it’s also great for the Earth!
As museums continue to embrace digital tools to enhance their exhibits and visitor experiences, we’re grateful to take part in the never-ending dialogue and sharing of best practices around technology in the museum. How do we use technology effectively? How do we make sure that it complements the exhibit? And, sometimes most critically, can we afford it? We headed over to the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum to take part in the Greater Boston Museum Educators Roundtable conversation on the topic.

The private sector has long employed customer relationship management (CRM) software, but today, more and more, nonprofits, museums, and other organizations are recognizing the power of having a CRM.
