Why You Should Have a Touch Screen at your Exhibit

January 31, 2019

Whether you’re the owner of a museum or curate art, you’re probably on the hunt for ways to keep your exhibits interesting for your attendees. Whether that entails bright lights and sounds or a free incentive, nothing is really off the drawing board. However, one of the best features to include is a custom touch screen display — but why is that?


Can you recall the last time you thoroughly enjoyed an exhibit at a local museum or gallery? One of the best ways to keep your audience coming back for more is to incorporate an interactive element with your display. This will not only build word-of-mouth traffic (because who wouldn’t like to check out an interactive element?), but the screens can be repurposed with new digital content in the years to come!


Years ago, it was common for many exhibits to have tour guides — but that’s not something that you usually see nowadays. If you’re looking to give your guests a great experience, then an interactive touch screen display is the answer. Think about it like this: the screen can implement slides that will not only keep your audience informed, but it can even incorporate a section that will let them ask their own questions; the possibilities are endless!

Long Term

Unlike printing out signage for your exhibit, a custom touch screen from Apollo can be transformed over the years. It’s the same concept as pulling a window up on your desktop computer; the digital presentation can be changed over the years, which is perfect for the museum or curator that wants to bring something new to their audiences down the line.
