Abstract: The Worcester Art Museum is looking to involve interpretive technologies within galleries to increase visitor engagement. A mobile website with main features being an interactive map, audio tours, and exhibit viewer was implemented. Following the steps of documenting, interviewing, and prototyping, we were able to achieve the goal of developing a working mobile website. The project was culminated with the mobile website, a promotional video, recommendations, and a set of sustainable documents.
