TourSites for WordPress: Digital Tour Experiences for Multi-site Museum Networks

The development of a platform that supports the sharing of humanities content through mobile tours in both exterior and interior spaces, building on Curatescape and Wordpress platforms.

While there is no shortage of digital experience options for cultural heritage institutions, the number of realistic options for today’s small-­- and medium-­-sized institutions is unfortunately slim, and museums of all sizes still struggle to deliver engaging mobile experiences. TourSites for WordPress: Digital Tour Experiences for Multisite Museum Networks will create a digital platform that combines WordPress and Curatescape into a new opportunity for the field. This project builds on previous collaborations between the Ohio History Connection and the Center for Public History + Digital Humanities and leverages their respective expertise to create a new set of tools specifically for the WordPress Network environment. The open-­-source platform created by this project will enable any institution to create digital tour experiences across multiple locations, maintain those networks with efficient use of resources and connect the public to stories, people and places in innovative ways.
