WASHINGTON, DC.- The National Building Museum
has launched its first ever smartphone mobile application, National Building Museum Mobile (NBMobile). The free app will be available in the Apple App store and through Google Play for Android devices.
In addition to on-the-go access to exhibition and program tickets, app users will have the ability to create their own schedules, choosing from upcoming lectures, films, panel discussions, and family events. Users will also find new ways to explore the National Building Museums historic home through an in-app audio tour and trivia game.
The app also seamlessly integrates with the online Museum Shop and social media networks. Users can take and share notes and photos from within the application, as well as post to their personal networks.
Many of our visitors use smartphones and other mobile devices to plan their trip to the Museum, and we have been exploring ways to make that experience more convenient and more fun, said Brett Rodgers, director of marketing & communications. Our new app will make it easier for them to learn about whats happening at the National Building Museum and to connect with us before, during, and after their visit.
