Client: The Playhouse Peoria Children's Museum
Playhouse Peoria is a children’s museum located in Peoria, IL that provides children with the tools and inspiration to be explorers and creators of the world.
A fun, kid-friendly app was created for the museum to provide a map of the building by level, and to serve as a guide to each exhibit. The app would utilize indoor geolocation technology and ibeacons so that visitors can see their location on the map while at the museum. In order to keep the focus on interacting with museum exhibits as opposed to interacting with just the app, a list of activities to be completed at each exhibit will be provided upon entering an exhibit area. An icon set was also created to represent each individual exhibit.
Possible future considerations include Google Cardboard integration and the addition of a timer for each activity in order to keep visitors from rushing through the exhibits just to obtain a prize.
