MFA Explore Application

The MFA Explore App was designed in response to high school student’s feedback and experiences of Museum of Fine Arts school field trips. Students wanted more freedom to explore the museum outside of a tour group. 95% of students interviewed wanted to know more about the artwork and artists, but wanted different ways to access the information aside from museum tags or tours. This app aims to increase student engagement by promoting greater autonomy and learning for students. This app also hopes to increase youth attendance to museums to reverse the trend of declining adult museum attendance and increase diversity.
