Explorer: "A great aid to anyone seeing the museum...
Saved me from fear
I got this app so I could at all costs STAY AWAY FROM THE BLUE WHALE MODEL. Whales scare me so badly, and I needed to know how I could stay as far away as possible from it. But my family wanted to see it, so I walked with them up to where the exhibit starts, so I could not see it. This app helped me know how close I was getting to it, since it tracked my steps real time. It was spot on accurate to my location in the museum. I'm rating it five stars since it saved me from having a heart attack in public. Also the other stuff in the app works great.
Best museum app
I’ve downloaded my share of museum apps since I frequent many museums. This is by far the best museum app I’ve downloaded. The best feature is indoor maps. Enable WiFi (you may need to connect to their WiFi) and Bluetooth and the app will show you your location within the museum. It will also guide you turn by turn to get to a specific exhibit/area to a museum. This is especially useful since the museum is cavernous and it’s easy to get lost. The tidbits of information about exhibits is neat too! Love this app!
Useful information, but flawed navigation
Good overview and detailed info on contents and locations. Useful guides for kids. With museum wifi, navigation to specific exhibits in museum is difficult at best. Paper map was more useful.
I was trying to figure where the American Indians were for about 30mins before I downloaded the app. After I did it was a straight forward 11 minute walk right to the hall of eastern woodland Indians. I would highly recommend anyone to download the app if there visiting the natural history museum.
This app is really helpful. It gives you live map so you won’t get lost in the museum. Also it helps you navigate important things and gives you a brief explanation about that. So, download the app before you come to the museum!
The app doesn’t fully work. I loved the app at first but when you try to swipe right or left on certain pictures or tabs that have more information on them the app won’t let you swipe. It was really upsetting because we couldn’t see all the information provided, and when we read the plaques for the exhibit the information wasn’t on there either so we were left with major cliffhangers
It shows the places of every single exhibit and shows you how to get there. It also shows you where the bathrooms are (bless). Very helpful and usefull, would recommend using when in the American Natural History Museum in NYC.
Very helpful for a first time visitor
Gives all the things one needs in a single map. With turn by turn directions and information on all the stuff in the museum. Must download at your visit to AMNH.
Don’t waste your time with this battery-sucking piece of junk: Just pick up a map in the lobby instead! The app states that it doesn’t track you, but if you look closely it is on at all times, even when you close the app (apparently location services is automatically enabled at all times unless you completely disable everything, but the the app locks!). Junk junk junk!!!
Great concept. Has good potential
As a mom with a toddler, this app is very useful. Instead of meandering, I can search for the topic of interest and head to the section quickly without hesitation. This has been very useful when my daughter requests to see her latest obsession (giraffes, gorillas, squid, etc). Only thing I thought odd was directions to bathrooms cut me through the museum shop on more than one occasion. I don't know if it was my locations at the time but it happened more than once where there was a more direct route.
Good navigation, crashes when I link to link membership
App repeatedly crashes if I try to look my membership details with the “link ticket” button, and “member login” just takes me to the website...
Use a paper map
The map is weird and hard to get at-a-glance of where you are and where to go. It’s oddly too detailed, and giant photos that obstruct things. Deleting. Also, it’s tracking my location even when the app is closed, against my permission. Not cool, I don’t like invasions of my privacy.
Not very convenient...
When it never allowed me to link the tickets. That feature does not work
Does everything I needed it for.
Poorly Lit Museum
This museum is poorly lit and has poor navigation signage. This app often doesn’t give clear direction because of shortcomings of GPS for this application.
