New experience


I'm a local and visit balboa park pretty frequently. I'm hesitant to revisit museums too frequently in case there's nothing new to enjoy. But this app brought a whole new perspective to a lot of the art that is a staple in the museum. There wasn't enough time to listen to all the audio stops so I look forward to returning or maybe just listing to it while I'm at home!

Convenient app with one minor flaw


The app seem great, filled with some great features. One little thing...the events calendar is off. Events are being posted on the calendar at +8 hours compared to local event times. For example an event happening at 5p local or Pacific time is being posted at 1am the next day.

Can't figure out AR!


I downloaded the app because a flyer stated you could experience 18th century Venice with the AR function. I've searched the app high and low, but can't find where the AR button is. :( I must say it is a beautifully designed app though.
