Museum is great but App is pretty useless
First, the app took forever to load, so I figured that it must have had a lot of good stuff on it. Wrong!! Few scannable items. Tours are no good unless you have a Goodson, and both the app maps and hard copy maps distributed at the museum are worthless. We need maps that show exhibits within each section. Then there is the problem of not knowing where the theaters are and how to get to them once you are in an exhibit. Signage is horrible. And lighting is so low on some exhibits that the phone couldn't scan and we couldn't read the descriptions. It's a great museum but not "user-friendly" and that is reflected in the app.
The scavenger hunt was great to keep my kids moving through the museum. Only wish it were longer or there were more!
