The Scenario

The Museo Egizio di Torino or Egyptian Museum is an archaeological museum in Turin, Italy, specialising in Egyptian archaeology and anthropology. The characteristic of the building has some special peculiarities for your visit.

At the beginning of the visit, floor -1 shows the history of the Museum, after which the visitor must ascend various escalators to floor 2, where the visit to its collection begins.

Like many museums around the world, a solution was required which does not rely on a strong cellular or Wi-Fi signal coverage.

MuseumMate Solution

MuseumMate carried out an implementation of its latest products that use the Visitor Assistant technology, which give the visitors a choice between:

EasyGuide for those visitors who wish to access the contents directly on their mobile phones. As the availability of an internet connection is not guaranteed, the EasyGuide tool allows content to be downloaded gradually, even downloading the specific stops in advance where there is no cellular or internet connection.

SmartGuide, the MuseumMate physical touch screen device that allows those visitors who prefer to loan a device from the museum with the Visitor Assistant software pre-installed to access the contents.
