There are many sectors that can benefit from interactive digital signage, allowing people to engage with your event, advert or display.
In particular, digital signage for museums, and similar institutions such as art galleries or aquariums, can offer their visitors a much more engaging and fulfilling experience through interactive experiences. Here are just some of the ways that they can help you to make your museum digital signage displays more informative and entertaining.
Expanded information in a small space
It’s hard to share all of the information that you’d like to in a limited space, and it’s important that your written explanations don’t detract too much from the exhibits themselves.
Digital solutions mean that you can present as much or as little information as you like in a small space. This allows you to cater to audiences that crave more detail without cluttering up your display or making the text too overfacing for those visitors who don’t wish to read as much.
Offer descriptions in different languages
Museums are popular tourist destinations, but it can be difficult to provide descriptions in different languages.
Implementing interactive signage that allows visitors to choose their language helps to make the museum visit more informative and worthwhile to visitors who may otherwise not be able to understand the context of your collection.
Keep children engaged and entertained
It can be difficult to keep children entertained or to hold their focus for long periods of time, especially if they are not particularly engaged with the subject matter.
Interactive signage is a great way to get the little ones involved through fun facts, games and activities, as well as offering child-friendly descriptions for the exhibits. Children often struggle with not being allowed to touch the displays, as they are very hands-on learners, so giving them something that they are encouraged to engage with can be truly beneficial to their experience.
Improved inclusivity and accessibility
All visitors are different, and it’s important to accommodate these different needs as much as possible in order to create a positive and memorable experience.
Interactive signage allows visitors to select different options for the description that they would like to see. For example, simplified versions for young children or those with learning disabilities, and large-font formats or audio descriptions for the elderly or visually impaired.
