Ratings and Reviews
No audio guide. Pointless app.
Honestly, paying for a map (which is free at the museum) and some info (which is physically on a card in front of the objects anyway) is a real waste of money. I feel robbed, as I had to pay for the audio guide and carry essentially another iPhone in a huge case at the museum anyway.
I wouldn't have bought it if I had known there was no audio guide. Consider this my involuntary donation...
I should also say that the map is useless, as it contains no legend with names for each room number. This is not even a complete list of objects either, only a guide to some of them.
Don't waste your money
I could have looked over the fact that no audio was included if there was sufficient text included about the exhibits. As I entered the first hall at the Museum I found that there were hundreds of items on display yet not even a dozen on the app. So I found myself using Wikipedia on roaming. Save your five dollars and get the audio guide at the door. Fantastic map included in the app even though they are also free at the door. Very disappointing!!!!!
Do not buy - waste of money
This is not the audio guide everyone expects. Nothing put pictures you can get free online or can read the description next to item.
