Fluid Engage is building flexible software with museums and cultural institutions to enhance their visitors' experience. Engage makes it easy for visitors to connect with content, interact with objects, and extend the museum visit. On this page, you can find our design work on a museum mobile application, museum kiosk interface and chassis, and general museum contextual research.


This project is a collaboration with the McCord Museum, Montreal, Canada and produced a mobile application that allowed visitors to view the museum's collections. The links below are examples of the latest developments:
> Latest wireframes: Draft 9
> Latest interaction flow diagram (PDF): Draft 9
> Latest user testing results: Draft 9, Engage 0.3
> Benchmark of iPhone and mobile in museums
> Twitters from MoMA's "What features would you like in an museum iPhone app?"
> See all in mobile


This project is a collaboration with the Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit, USA and produced a physical kiosk experience that allowed visitors to view, select and print themed tours. The links below are examples of the latest developments:
