Abstract

Mobile devices as smart phones or PDA are common devices in our daily life. Museums and art galleries are provided with some electronic guides in order to do more pleasant the visit to the exhibition. Our research group has been working in designing and developing mobile software for art museums based on PDA. The problem studied in this paper is to prove the suitableness of using PDA instead of the traditional electronic guides. It is interesting to know how to use these devices as a medium to guide and improve the visitors’ experience. Before presenting the components of our solution we introduce the important items and concepts by means of our conceptual model.
