A New Museum Experience with Real Time Location System
In today's dynamic landscape, museums have evolved from traditional, static exhibition spaces where art is passively observed to interactive hubs capable of engaging diverse audiences.

A visit to a museum can be redefined as a unique and thematic experience, with the ultimate goal of making these museum outings more frequent and enjoyable moments of play. This transformation seamlessly aligns with our state-of-the-art Nextome RTLS solutions, a network of compact, battery-powered, and energy-efficient sensors strategically placed within the exhibition area, all synchronized with our proprietary engine.

This article will explore Nextome RTLS's advantages within museums and exhibitions.


Enhanced navigation and orientation

One of the primary advantages of RTLS in museums is the ability to provide visitors with improved navigation and orientation. RTLS allows visitors to receive real-time directions to reach artworks within the museum, ensuring a smoother, more immersive, and relaxed experience. Furthermore, RTLS makes the experience more accessible for visitors with special mobility needs, customizing their paths. This is what we did for the Museo Castromediano in Lecce: discover more in our case study.



More immersive experiences

RTLS can also enhance immersive experiences within museums. Nextome RTLS enables the creation of personalized tours, where visitors can receive detailed information about specific artworks or objects on display as they move through the museum.

Visitors can also get customized food and retail offers according to their position in the space.


Less congestion and more security

RTLS solutions also contribute to reducing congestion within museums. With Nextome RTLS, visitors can receive real-time notifications about crowded areas, enabling a more even distribution of people within the museum. As a result, this will reduce queues and improve the overall experience. Our system also allows keeping groups and families connected through location sharing. Security personnel can also prevent and detect emergencies by always knowing where they're most needed.


Improved data analysis and operations

You can also use data collected from RTLS to analyze visitor behavior and improve museum operations. RTLS allows data collection on visitor preferences, dwell times, and frequently traveled routes. This information is valuable for museum management and future planning.


Augmented experiences thanks to third-party applications

RTLS solutions can expand their features by integrating third-party applications. With museum apps, Nextome RTLS enables additional features such as voice guides, interactive games, and augmented reality.

Adopting Nextome RTLS in museums offers a range of advantages that enhance the visitor experience and optimize museum operations. Improved navigation, immersive experiences, congestion reduction, data analysis, and third-party applications can create a more engaging and educational museum environment that will leave a lasting impression on visitors.
