The iMuse Programme

The iMuse programme aims to enable everyone to increase their enjoyment of, learn from and interact with museums, galleries and similar public spaces. We are working with museums and galleries and their visitors to try out various types of mobile device such as smartphones and iPads accessing virtual space and interacting with the real space.

The iMuse programme started in late 2011 and was managed by the charity, AACT, in partnership with small/modest sized museums and galleries. The Reading-based charity, RG spaces, is managing the programme from mid 2015.
