Working with Acoustiguide, a leading name in digital interpretation, the Museum has designed eGuide to help enhance visitors’ experience of selected exhibits. It offers audio commentaries, high quality images and descriptive text for over 70 objects. The guide is arranged in tours, including Explore all Galleries, Director’s Choice, thematic tours, and special guided tours of temporary exhibitions when available.
The guide can be downloaded in advance, free of charge, from Apple and Android app stores, or can be hired from the Museum at a cost of £4 (£3 concessions), free to Friends of the Fitzwilliam Museum.
A case study on the Fitzwilliam Museum’s eGuide was presented by Acoustiguide at the Museums and Heritage Show on last year.
