Ratings and Reviews
Guggenheim Museum is a well designed application that is beneficial to users visiting the museum and also for those who aren't but would like to learn more about the institution and what they are currently showing. With the app users who are not there can use it to see current events and current exhibitions. Users can dive into detail about each and all it's pertaining content. Users can also search for content by entering in a keyword. For users at the museum it can be used to also look up events and exhibitions but also as a interactive guide for where you are, what's near you and where you want to go inside the building. The app has a indoor map that illustrates the sections of the museum. The app can also be used to purchase tickets, look up dining options, gift store information, hours of operation, directions and more. This app is well worth a download for anyone interested in the prestigious museum whether you plan to visit in person or not.
Best museum app I’ve used
This is a great app to use when visiting the Guggenheim in New York. It uses Bluetooth to know where you are standing and give you useful info on the works of art in your proximity.
It is heavy to download, but Guggenheim has free WiFi.
I would recommend downloading it at home before heading to the museum.
Also, pro tip: museum is pay as you wish on Fridays after 5:45.
Can’t download data
Right now, the app is useless since it keeps telling me it can’t find the server to download the data it needs to function. My internet connection definitely is working!
