The Melbourne Museum, the most visited museum in Australia, asked the project team to determine the effectiveness of their scavenger hunt mobile application Time Lens Episode I: Treasures and Gems, as well as design a course of action for a new mobile application. The evaluation of Time Lens was used to determine if future family-based mobile applications were viable and desirable for use in the Melbourne Museum. The team observed the use of the application and discussed its effectiveness with families, staff, and peers. Based on these discussions the project team constructed plans for a future application for use at the Melbourne Museum. Our final recommendations also include plans to promote mobile technology within the museum.
