Silesian Museum

This application serves as a guide to the new premises of the Silesian Museum, and provides information about the events hosted there. The minimalist interface, colour, and typography provide the user with quick and convenient access to information about events and current exhibitions. The app also helps to navigate the Museum grounds, using WiFi and Bluetooth. The program is friendly to disabled users, and interfaces with the migam.pl website.

The information displayed in the application is updated using a special content management system (CMS), based on our proprietary backend solutions. The API that we have developed allows to integrate the museum’s information kiosks with the system.

The challenge

Coinciding with the Silesian Museum’s move to new premises, an idea arose to create not only a new mobile application, but to actually develop an entire management system for the app and the museum's special interactive information kiosks.

Another challenge involved creating a reliable navigation system, to guide visitors through the Silesian Museum’s new premises and the large number of available exhibitions.

The solution

The first task was to create a suitable backend and content management system (CMS). This involved developing iOS and Android app including, among others, reliable location services for the premises. To achieve this, we had to install several hundred beacons, deployed in relevant location, as well as configured and calibrated to ensure precise navigation on museum grounds. This has been one of the largest beacon implementation projects in Poland, and in fact in Europe. The project involved physically placing the beacons inside the Silesian Museum.

We have also integrated the backend that we developed, the CMS, and the Museum’s website with the interactive information kiosks available to visitors. To do that, we had to create a tailor-made API that allows these devices connect to the system and download data.

Last, but not least, we trained museum staff in using the CMS, and administrators from the server back-office management.
