    iOS App, Android App, Inhouse-Guide

The newly developed Multimedia-guide for the Jewish Museum Berlin offers visitors the opportunity to experience and explore the world-famous building and its contents in a new and complementary way. 

The design is adapted to the architecturally unconventional and pioneering style of Daniel Libeskind, the multimedia-guide, which is available both as a public app and as an in-house-guide, provides further information on the newly set up permanent exhibition: For example, it is possible to immerse yourself in the paintings and objects on display and to receive in-depth information. Furthermore, real-space installations are supplemented by their extensions in digital space, thereby offering playful interactions with the new permanent exhibition. For example, swipe gestures known from dating apps can be used in the “Hall of Fame” in order to get to know better contextually important historical personalities. Or users can playfully learn kosher shopping at the Kashrut-station.

A location function controlled by iBeacons facilitates and supports individual orientation in the architecturally sophisticated building. In addition, the Multimedia-guide was coordinated with the advisors of the General Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Berlin (ABSV): all texts can be read out to visually impaired people, and vice versa, all audio tracks are available as read-along texts, images are provided with descriptive texts.

In the long run,  the Jewish Museum offers various special tours available exclusively in digital form via the Multimedia-guide, which can be received individually by attendees. Visitors can also stroll freely and select individual ones from over 100 stations. Here an interactive map offers first-class orientation.
