The Postal Museum
The Postal Museum of London purchased a set of tablets intended to support engagement during primary school group visits. Our teams goal was to identify how The Postal Museum might deploy these tablets to improve the effectiveness and consistency of the in-gallery experience. We identified industry benchmarks by conducting observations and interviews at museums offering digital programs for schools. Next, we assessed the needs of our target audience through interviews and focus groups. Based on our findings, we created and tested a functional alpha prototype outlining activities for use in The Postal Museum gallery. In addition to the prototype we delivered a set of recommendations detailing how to implement and maintain the tablets most effectively.
