As the role of the museum expands, so do the tools required to fulfill that role. Whether an exhibit is online or within concrete walls, simulation is an opportunity for deeper communication with museum audiences. Recent developments in audio-tours and portable electronic guides are transforming the visitors' experience. As new technologies make their way into the museums, institutions that adopt them first will set precedents and gain prestige for their pioneering work. N Formation can help with this technological transition by generating relevant contact that engages museum-goers without sacrificing the core-values of the institution.
Exhibit Kiosks:
Simulations on the gallery floor can enhance the understanding of existing artifacts and exhibits by delivering interconnected information. A virtual model of a priceless artifact lets visitors explore aspects and viewpoints of the object that would be otherwise unavailable. A simulation of a woolly mammoth moving through pre-historic Siberia adds context and life to a large, but otherwise boring, skeleton.

Online Exhibitions:
An on-line exhibition is a great way to advertise a real-life exhibition, or to provide universally accessible educational content at a global scale. Images, Flash Animations, and QuickTimeVR applets have drastically increased the impact of museums over the web, and they will continue to do so. But our real-time, interactive, 3D models offer something that these other media don't: true exploration. As creatures that live in three spatial dimensions, people love to explore spaces. Virtual spaces are no exception.

Realtime Maps:
The real space of the museum can be dauntingly confusing. Not only are museums often architecturally complicated, but the contents within are a major distraction to finding your way. Much like audio tours, handheld PDAs can provide responsive maps that use GPS or other locational technologies. Spatial, multi-tiered maps are better at conveying architectural space than a series of floor plans. Traditional map kiosks can also be enhanced with 3D rooms, directions, and virtual guides.
