The Powell-Cotton Museum at Quex Park in Birchington, Kent, UK, was established in 1896 by Major Percy Horace Gordon Powell-Cotton (1866-1940) to house natural history museum specimens and cultural objects collected on expeditions to Asia and Africa.
This app showcases the exhibits in Gallery 6. It allows the user to take a tour of the gallery, exploring the artefacts brought back by Percy Powell-Cotton from five of his trips around Asia and Africa. The app includes original photos and film taken during his expeditions, interactive maps showing the route he took and highlights of his journey.
The app also acts as a portal to the museum's online database, which contains searchable pictures and information about a huge selection of the museum's exhibits.
