The web app for the newly opened Wien Museum offers visitors low-threshold access. A simple QR code scan gives them direct access to in-depth content on over 100 objects in the permanent exhibition. The application enables themed tours, provides information in multiple languages, including simple language and sign language, and allows the creation of personalised audio playlists.

In close cooperation with the Wien Museum, we have developed an innovative web app that offers visitors a digital companion directly on their mobile phones. This web app can be used to access in-depth content on around 100 objects in the new permanent exhibition. Access is simple and customized – without an initial download, but rather through uncomplicated access via a QR code scan.
