Abstract

This project explored adding visual labels to two exhibits in the Launch Pad gallery of the London Science Museum. Visual labels are instructional videos or slideshows that demonstrate the proper use of interactive exhibits and tie scientific principles to a visitor's real life. We tested three different visual labels on two exhibits, the Turntable and the Arch Bridge. Through our analysis based on observation and interviews, we identified factors of success and failure across these methods.
