Carry Local History in Your Pocket: HRNM's New App

By now, you have probably seen us advertising our new Hampton Roads Naval Museum app. We hope you've had the opportunity to look at it and learn more about many of the artifacts on display inside the museum. The app allows Naval Museum staff the chance to provide visitors with much more detailed information than you can get from our exhibits, and also allows visitors to look at our exhibit objects both onsite and offsite. Of course, if you use the app while in the museum, you can also complete our fun scavenger hunt and get a prize for it!

What we have done thus far is only the first step. Next, we intend to introduce visitors to artifacts in our collection that are not currently on exhibit. It will take us a while to get there, but we anticipate making the app more interactive and increasingly accessible as time goes on.

You can download the Hampton Roads Naval Museum's FREE app for iPhone or Android (simply click the embedded link). Many thanks to our friends at iTourMobile for their hard work and support in developing this app!
