Kapesni tours make cultural experiences more fun, satisfying, and memorable. Through self-guided tours with image slideshows, audio clips, text captions and descriptions, and (soon) video, we help museum visitors get more out of their museum visit: engage, understand, enjoy, articulate, share, and remember what they see.

Museums can subscribe to Kapesni for $95/month and leverage existing education materials (wall labels, catalog essays, podcasts, audio guides, etc.) to create a full-featured tour in just one day of work: a half-day of preparation and an afternoon to upload content. Subsequent tours are even easier, so you’ll be able to create Kapesni tours for every temporary exhibition, not just your permanent collection.

Use of our service is FREE FOR VISITORS, and it can be accessed through any device with a Web browser: cell phones, smartphones, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android mobile devices, Blackberry phones, Windows Mobile phones, Palm devices, and laptop and desktop computers.

Visitors can access tours from any museum that uses Kapesni—anywhere in the US or around the world. Preview tours, learn more when you’re visiting museums, and save your favorite objects to a digital notebook so you can remember them later or share them with friends. Kapesni is best on free custom Apps for Apple’s iOS (iPhone, iPad, iTouch) and Google’s Android (Droid, Evo, HTC, Samsung, and many others).
