Welcome to Story Drop, a smartphone app from Brighton & Hove’s Royal Pavilion and Museums.

** New Tours for May 2014: Crime & Punishment in Brighton, Brighton Festival History Hunt and Histories of the Never Happened. **

We hold thousands of objects in our collections, and they can all tell us stories about life in Brighton & Hove. Story Drop is a way for us to tell these tales beyond the walls of our museums. We’ve taken the stories from some our objects and scattered them across the city. Using your mobile phone and the Story Drop app, you can collect these stories from the very places they might call home.

Using Story Drop is easy. Choose a tour from the app, and it will show you a series of clues pinned to a map of Brighton & Hove. Travel to the place shown on the map and check in with the app. This will unlock a story about that place, as told by an object from our collections.

As you unlock stories, connections will start to emerge. Themes, associations and patterns will appear. Story Drop will track your progress, and will let you know when you have unlocked a series of connected stories.

Great idea, but...

I love the idea of this app, but I can't work out how to use it, which is really frustrating because I sure it's great when you know how.
