App on the permanent exhibition at Museum in der Kulturbrauerei 'Everyday Life in the GDR'

More than 80 percent of our viewers have a smartphone with them in the museum. Some of them use the devices while visiting exhibitions, to take photographs, to share exciting news via social media, or to swiftly look something up online. Would it not make sense for the museum to also support the use of smartphones to enable visitors to access the exhibitions in the way they are used to?

We thought so, and that’s why we developed and created apps for the permanent exhibitions at the Haus der Geschichte in Bonn, Tränenpalast and Museum in der Kulturbrauerei. We wanted to give you added value both in the museum and in the comfort of your home. Check it out!
