The Curio App   –   Enhance your visitor experience


Curio is the app designed to enhance your displays and exhibits.

Make your customer’s visits more accessible and enjoyable.

Why have we made Curio

Why have we made Curio


As regular and enthusiastic visitors to a range of exhibit based attractions, we were always eager to learn about the items on display by reading their information labels.

We found that, no matter which venues we visited, the same problems arose, namely the displayed exhibit information was rarely easy to read comfortably.

This would be for a variety of reasons:

    • Labels are often placed low down to accomodate children and disabled visitors (and rightly so)
    • Exhibits and their information may be set far back in the display
    • Font size and labels may be very small, where space is limited and item descriptions are extensive
    • Displays with light sensitive exhibits have low lighting and hence poorly lit information
    • Crowds around popular exhibits can make accessing the descriptions difficult

All this is perfectly understandable due to the huge variety of displays and environments.

So, as good and dedicated developers, we came up with a solution.

How It Works

How It Works


Make your exhibit display descriptions easily accessible by adding a highly visible text or QR code.

Your visitors download the freely available Curio App, taylored to your organisation, on their phone or tablet.

Visitors tap in or scan the code adjacent to the exhibit of interest, and the display description is immediately presented on their device.

To further engage your visitor with the exhibit.

  • include captioned images
  • include captioned audio clips
  • link your Youtube videos
  • ‘be an explorer’ treasure hunt game
  • display your amazing interactive 3D Models
  • ‘be an explorer’ treasure hunt game
  • include optional detailed object text
  • multi-language translations

Not only that, but for maximum accessibility, the Curio App allows your visitor to alter the text size, toggle the contrast for improved readabilty, and can even read the display description aloud.

The Curio App is designed for maximum ease of use, with a clear and unfussy interface and with all the accessibility functions available through a single screen tap.

NEW – 3D Model presentation

3D Models of exhibits are becoming more and more popular, providing a detailed and fascinating interactive multi-dimensional view of objects

The new 3D Model feature lets you display your existing models within the Curio app, with built in interactivity, allowing the visitor to navigate around the exhibit by simply moving their finger over the model.

Display Cases

The ‘Display Case‘ feature allows you to group your objects under a single QR code.

Match your own object labels to the object links in a featured Display Case.

Scanning the code presents a screen containing links to each of the items.
