The Museum of London is teaming up with Nokia to equip its exhibits with NFC technology, according to Noknok.tv.
The new design will allow visitors to swipe their NFC-enabled handsets near special tags from Nokia to receive pictures, links and other downloadable info about a given exhibit, rather than wear the guided tour headset.
“NFC Technology has the potential to change how we interact with our visitors,” commented Vicky Lee, Marketing Manager for the Museum of London. “By simply touching tags located throughout both our venues, visitors can delve deeper into London’s story in an immediate and engaging way, plus keep in touch with us by following the museum online.”
In addition to enriching the museum experience, the tag system will also enable users to take advantage of the museum’s social network for offers at the gift shop and cafe.
