This Small Museum Shares How It Gets Kids Hooked on History
Today, most kids visiting museums would rather be on their parents' phones or looking for toys in the gift store. So, how can you keep kids engaged at a history museum?
Avoca Museum in Altavista, Virginia has found a way to make the impossible possible. Their secret is this: revolutionary mobile scavenger hunts by Engage by Cell.
After hearing how mobile technology has helped thousands of museums increase attendance, Avoca Museum just had to try out this revolutionary engagement tool themselves. “We’ve seen increased attendance in young families,” says Executive Director Michael Hudson, “and it’s a huge hit with millennials.”
Through mobile technology, museums everywhere are getting children excited to learn. For years Guide by Cell has partnered with museums all across the country such as the Orange County Museum of Art and LACMA.
Mobile technology proves to be the best way to engage visitors.
