Sorry Willy, we didn't get a new car, or even an outfit, but an addition to the learning experience for our guests. The newest introduction to the Museum is an audio tour system by Tour-Mate. Guests will be able to rent a 'wand' and listen to over 75 different informational 'stops' inside the museum. Stops include detailed information about the clothing displays, automobiles, Alaskan Photographs and an overview of each Era. In additional to English, we have numerous German and Japanese stops for our foreign speaking guests!
We'll be changing and adding stops as time goes on and adding greater detail about specific items as needed or requested. But not to worry, our dedicated staff of terrific Docents will be on hand to lead tours and answer questions on a more personal level.
Big thanks to Helga Wagenleiter for doing the German reading and Makiko Kawauchi for the Japanese, and yours truly (Conehead on the right) narrated the English. Please enjoy the sampling below and we hope you stop by this summer to hear more.
