Adobe Awards Entry 2019.

AMNH Digital Way-finding.

Problem: Over the years, the American Museum of Natural History grew significantly. As a result, the navigation became more complicated for the visitors.

Solution: We created new digital products to enhance the navigation in the museum through AR and AI to enhance the overall experience of the patrons.

The museum has a size of:

1,938,000 sq. ft
180'000 m²

That’s comparable to:

34 American Football fields.

Augmented Reality (AR) Navigation. The AR screen displays itineraries (custom & curated) and exhibit info in real-time.

Dash Button feature. Most visitors had trouble finding amenities, such as restrooms during their visit. Pressing a dash button will create a detour, if the user is currently following an active itinerary.

Itineraries. Visitors can also build their itineraries on in-museum kiosks and sends them to their phones.

Leveraging AI. The machine learning UI helps to improve itinerary suggestions.

Unified Navigation. We established a unified navigation system and iconography across all physical and digital museum spaces.

UX Research

We conducted interviews with patrons to learn how they feel about navigating the museum:
Used the paper map

Knew about the app and used it
Used no navigation
Ended up being lost

Affinity mapping

Creating personas

Empathy mapping for each persona
