This project describes how to best use GPS mobile phones at Frilandsmuseet located in Lyngby, Denmark in order to interest the museum's unreceptive young adult audience. After applying participant observation techniques and interviewing museum curators and staff to assess the potential of using historical fiction to reach their young adult audience, the project team concludes that Frilandsmuseet should incorporate the use of a self guided tour implemented on their mobile phone platform in order to transmit intangible cultural heritage.
