Ratings and Reviews
Great audio tour!
I loved using the app for the audio tour around the museum! The tour options were great for getting a taste of the collections in a short amount of time. This app also allows you to punch in the number for any piece to hear about it. The map works excellently and even knows what floor you are on! The visual descriptions for pieces are a great resource for visitors with visual impairments. Every museum should have an app like this.
Great app for search and tours
The search functionality is super helpful to find artworks and services like restaurants and cafes. The tours have amazing audio content! Very easy to orient yourself in the museum and locate the artworks. Overall great experience!
You can add your member card!
Wow, this app is so cool! I’m a member at the Art Institute and one of the coolest features is having your member card at your finger tips. You can also search for any artwork on view. Pretty nifty.
