As a museum curator, your goal is to provide useful information to your guests that will help them enjoy your exhibits. One of the best ways of doing that is by providing fold up wallet cards with maps. Here are just a few ways these maps could be beneficial to visitors.
It isn’t always possible for a guide to show people around, in which case it’s likely that they will miss some important attractions. If these attractions are clearly listed on a map, the odds that people will visit them increase dramatically. This also makes it easier for people who have a limited amount of time in your museum to find what they are looking for.
If you have a very large museum, it could be easy for members of different parties to become separated. This could be a very big problem when school groups visit, because it means that children may become unaccounted for. A better solution would be to allow the leader to identify a rally point for people to go to if they become lost. He or she could then pass out maps with that point circled for everyone to reference.
Many people will enjoy your maps so much that they will want to take them home as a souvenir. They may pull this map out later and begin reminiscing about their visit, making it more likely that they will come back again for another.
A custom map of your museum can also provide other important information such as operating hours and news about upcoming events. To find out more about museum map printing, please contact us.
