Since interactive touch screen TVs have already proven to be immensely popular in schools and education, it is no surprise that they also transform museums into child-friendly, dynamic hubs for learning and discovery.
They are also a fantastic way of expanding on museum exhibits across a greater scope, without risking museum guests touching or damaging the priceless artifacts on display.
Why use an interactive touch screen TV in a museum or school?
Illustrate complex geological processes with dynamic videos
Whether you intend to explain the water cycle, the process of fossilization, or the movement of tectonic plates across the planet, a static text explanation can quickly lose the attention of your audience.
Why not use an interactive touch screen TV to provide an informative video, complete with diagrams and animations? Since museum guests can play, pause and move the timestamp on the video, they will be far less likely to get bored and move on to another area of your exhibition.
Zoom in on the finer details
From getting an up-close view of a wasp’s sting to looking at the fine hairs on a mummy’s head, your interactive touch screen TV can showcase high-resolution 360-degree photos of your exhibits – and best of all, museum staff will not need to worry about guests pressing up against the display glass to get that closer look.
Do MRI scans or X-rays shed more light on a particular artifact in your museum’s collection? You can also add these to your interactive touch screen TV, so users can learn more about the history behind it.
Shed light on research and archaeology processes
If your museum visitors have not yet developed an interest in the subject matter your museum focuses on, then a standalone artifact outside of any context is unlikely to pique their interest.
However, you will almost certainly ignite curiosity in your visitors by showing footage of the archaeology and research processes on your interactive touch screen TV. You can even offer users the option of watching interviews with historians and archaeologists as they share more information about the object on display.
Highlight details in paintings and tapestries
Want to draw attention to a particular exhibit without risking your visitors damaging it?
An interactive touch screen TV is the perfect way to put an article under the spotlight without the risk of overcrowding it. From a distance, visitors can zoom in on specific highlighted areas of a high-resolution photograph of the object. This is a great way of showcasing historically significant details, symbolism, or depictions of figures.
Offer multilingual content
As interesting as your museum’s collection may be, language barriers will inevitably dissuade tourists from paying a visit.
Offer informative texts, diagrams and video subtitles in multiple languages, which users can select by tapping on a flag icon, for example, and you’ll see greater visitor numbers in no time.
Provide fun quizzes for children
Offer the ultimate experience for museum visitors of all ages with multiple-choice quizzes. Instead of just reading information on the collection, your visitors can then test their knowledge and broaden it further.
