Abstract

The goal of this project was to assess the viability of a mobile device application to display the stamp collection of the British Postal Museum and Archive (BPMA), making it accessible to online and onsite visitors of the new museum. We conducted research about technology uses in museums, and developed a prototype based on audience interest in stamp history and design. We concluded that successful museum apps have a novelty factor, varied content that adds to the exhibit, and flexible technology with a high level of interactivity.
