Amsterdam museum offers the visitors a different experience compared to the usual history museums. It actually gives an interactive overview of the history of Amsterdam in the space of one hour. All the visitors are given a small flyer with a QR code on top and for each totem they’ll find they can scan the code and immediately a video in their mother tongue (Dutch, English, French, German, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish or Italian) will start. There are seven videos in the museum. This makes the Amsterdam museum a really appealing museum, ideal for visitors who don’t have too much time to spend in the museums but they still want to know something about the city. The museums also offers an app which works with the experience the visitor do in his tour of the museum: depending on the answer he’ll give to the screens in the tour he could have a specific walk through the city based on his profile and follow this from his own smartphone.
