According to statistics published by the Department of Culture, Media & Sport, visits to sponsored museums and galleries in England were up 3.9 per cent in the 12 months between April 2013 and March 2014.
Over the year, these museums and galleries welcomed 48.8million visitors through their doors – that’s an awful lot of crowd control to take into consideration.
Museums are places of culture and sophistication, housing famous collections, specimens and artifacts. With such high footfall, effective queue management systems are vital to ensure that all visitors can comfortably enjoy the high value exhibits.
With this in mind, we have worked alongside the sector to offer a wide selection of discreet and elegant systems, effectively designed to manage the crowds. Our range of floor-standing and wall-mounted Post and Rope solutions can help to improve visitor flow and keep exhibits safe and secure.
Our stylish Post and Rope range secures exhibits without obscuring the crowds’ view whilst our Retractable Banner solutions enable museums to create highly visible, high impact advisory or media messaging.
For museums looking to further enhance the experience and engage with visitors, our Virtual Assistant range is proving very popular in all kinds of sectors – from exhibitions to airports and from football stadium tours to hospitals. The range uses cutting-edge technology to project an image and create the illusion of a real person who can convey consistent messages and impart key information.
Particularly suited to the museums sector, our Virtual Assistant Ultra can bring history to life, providing a wealth of information about the museum itself or about architecture, artifacts and even personifying a historical figure.
Its interactive push button panel option provides up to 11 additional menu items for visitors, giving them choices that could include multi-lingual communications, FAQs or directional and informative messages.
It provides a unique and visually compelling solution that can answer the most pertinent and frequently asked questions with round the clock availability and immediate response - freeing staff up to handle more urgent or personal requirements.
