Miami, FL, USA - July 27, 2012 -- Developers of TourOn announced the web-based mobile tour app's premiere at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum in Miami. By scanning a QR code or typing in a web link, visitors can read additional information about the historic engines, train cars and railroad equipment on display, view photos and learn about upcoming events.
“Museums, gardens, parks and zoos are looking for opportunities to create robust experiences for guests while staying on top of emerging trends,” explains David G. Taylor, creator of the app. “TourOn’s ease of use and cost effectiveness can assist with this.” says Taylor.
In 2007 the Gold Coast Railroad museum celebrated its 50th anniversary. Over the years, they have collected premium railroad equipment and cars including the “Ferdinand Magellan,” a former presidential pullman used by presidents Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower. TourOn can help visitors learn more about the history of each railway antiquity.
TourOn’s features* include a GPS enabled map for outdoor venues, an audio player for guests to access audio tours, detailed information for stops and exhibits, and a photo gallery amongst others. It also allows venue administrators to easily update information with a user friendly back-end. TourOn is compatible on most smartphones including iPhone and Android.
*Some of these features are available at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum.
