App Spotlight: Tombstone State Historic Courthouse

18 Feb

The Tombstone State Historic Courthouse in, Tombstone, Arizona, is bringing a new interactive experience to their space by providing visitors with a mobile tour app. The tour allows visitors to access educational content through their mobile devices.

With over 18 stops, the tour takes visitors around the 1882 two-story structure which currently serves as a museum and an ode to the famous frontier silver mining boomtown. The app offers new interpretive content about the exhibits, which paint a vivid picture of the history of Tombstone.

“We have a unique museum and want the world to visit us,” says Julie Vanderdasson, Tombstone Courthouse Manger. “In addition to educating onsite visitors, the app allows those from all over the world to interact with us and gain more knowledge about Tombstone’s history.”

Currently app users and visitors alike can learn about miners, cattlemen and pioneers, see a reproduction of the courtroom and sheriff’s office, and, the staff’s favorite, a replica of the gallows where seven men were hanged.

Built with our flexible app-building platform, the museum intends to add additional content to the app, including audio, video, text, and imagery. “Everyone will have so much content to look forward to, including audio pieces recorded by the non-profit group, the Tombstone Vigilantes,” says Vanderdasson.Tomstonte-Courthouse-Mobile-Tour-App
