Gemeentemuseum Den Haag

The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag is a museum for modern and contemporary art, fashion, arts & crafts en even musical instruments. The museum's most prized asset however is the collection of works by Piet Mondrian, which is the biggest in the world, spanning his entire career. We are using TAP as our new multimediatour system. We added a different multi-language option and cross-bundle search (which was later rendered superfluous because we opted for putting everything in a single bundle, but still). On the usability side we have tried to make everything as simple as possible: Changing around the Enter and Back buttons on the keypad and locking video in landscape mode. We found this important because the users of our toursystem are - on average - 55+ and allthough they have little problems with using the iPods, they are not familiar with some of its more subtle functions like the automatic portrait-landscape switch when tilting the device.
