RFID technology helps enhance the museum's visit experience and back-end support

Last May, the International Spy Museum set up a new 140,000-square-foot facility at L'enfant Square in Washington. In order to provide visitors with a meaningful and memorable interactive experience, the museum uses embedded RFID tags. The equipment and through these devices track the trajectory of visitors in the museum.

There are many museums around the world that use RFID technology to achieve interactive exhibitions. Such exhibitions sometimes give visitors a deeper impression than rare works. These personalized and interactive experiences can bring visitors a place to go. Additional gains in value deepen their understanding of history, art and society.

RFID can also provide the curator and other staff with data on popular exhibits. In addition, RFID technology helps museums track inventory and protect their most valuable assets from theft and damage.

RFID tags help museum visitors get a personalized experience

One of the core activities of the International Spy Museum is to experience the "undercover mission", which uses RFID technology and interactive stations to give visitors the identity of spies and test their spy skills. Visitors get their undercover badges at the museum's service center, and they can also enter their badge numbers online to print test results after the visit.

In an era where the Internet can be used to search for any information, museums are thinking about the value they can provide, one of which is to give visitors more immersive experiences.

For example, visitors to the Horsens Prison Museum in Denmark carry RFID tags to track the lives of specific prisoners or guards during the visit by watching videos, photos and information about the person. When the visitors arrive at the museum, they will select one of the 10 target people to follow as their own tracker – such as the prisoner named Carl August Lorentzen, who dug a 59-foot tunnel and escaped from the prison. During the visit, when the tourist places the RFID tag next to the reader, the image and video display can be activated by the laser projector and the touch screen in the entire venue.

At the end of the visit, visitors can leave their email address to receive the “password” on the museum website for more information. The museum then uses these addresses to send promotional messages.

RFID tags can also provide more practical opportunities. At the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History, visitors can access artifacts such as fossils and early tools protected by transparent boxes with RFID tags. When visitors put a piece of art in front of the touch screen, they can take photos, videos and Learn more about this item on the map.

RFID tags help museums achieve asset inventory and strengthen security

Retailers have long used RFID tags to monitor the location of goods in case they are stolen. Today, museums also use RFID technology. Many museums have thousands of artifacts, and without technical support, it is difficult for administrators to monitor collections.

It is understood that in order to find the best display environment for the artworks, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York even uses RFID tags to collect and analyze the environmental data of the exhibition space of the museum exhibits.
