The Royal Pavilion & Museums Brighton & Hove is one of the first museum services in the UK to develop a smartphone app.
Created by Brighton digital development company, Surface Impression, the FREE, user-friendly app encourages both visitors and residents to get out and explore Brighton’s best loved buildings and collections in a fun and informative way.
The app enables visitors to make the most of their visit, using maps, history, facts and photos. It helps visitors find their way to and around the five museums, and also keeps them in touch with activities throughout the year.
The app is available for both Apple iPhones and Android handsets, and provides visitor information for the Royal Pavilion, Brighton Museum, Hove Museum, Preston Manor and the Booth Museum.
The free app also features the occasional special offer, with current users benefitting from £1 off the full paying adult admission rate to the Royal Pavilion.
It can be used to keep up-to-date with museum news, collections and galleries. It helps visitors plan their diary with the What’s On tab, which features information on events, tours, family activities and exhibitions going on across the sites.
The app complements the Royal Pavilion & Museum’s other recent ventures in social media during the last year. The service has launched its own Facebook and Twitter accounts, in addition to the existing Flickr site and Wordpress blog, all of which have proven very popular, with the number of followers increasing week by week.
