As part of the consultation period prior to the redevelopment of the Lady Lever Art Gallery’s  South End galleries we asked visitors about how they would like to see Lord Lever’s collections interpreted.  We were keen to explore the use of technology in our displays but were mindful that many people were wary of too much intervention wanting to keep the galleries as they were. However, 99% of those surveyed said that they owned a smartphone and 71% were interested in a venue app and would consider downloading one.

We set to work planning how we could enhance a visit to the Gallery using digital content but not at the expense of the physical experience and so it was decided to develop a simple app which gave visitors, particularly families, an alternative method of exploring the collections in the new galleries and in the comfort of their own homes.
