Take a stroll though the “Streets of Old Milwaukee” exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum. Choose one of three audio character guides who give their perspective on life in Milwaukee at the turn of the last century (1890-1917). The App detects your location within the exhibit, so that the guide responds to your surroundings. The overarching theme of the exhibit will change periodically -complete with new app guides and stories. There’s always something new in Old Milwaukee!

While you can read your guide’s comments, the app is best experienced with headphones (audio playback is disabled if no headphones are attached to preserve other visitors’ experience).

Would not work

I was excited to use this app when I arrived at the museum. Once I set it to the story teller of my choice, it stated to go the the front of the rail car. That’s where the story ended for me. It never continue from that. I tried restarting and walking around all of old world to no avail. Maybe next time will be better.

Didn't work

The app just kept telling me to go to the front of the streetcar to start the tour. I walked all around the streetcar but nothing happened.
