Pathways App

Pathways App

Instead of creating just another museum tour app, we did something different.

The Pathways app was created to share stories told nowhere else in the Museum. Pathways are stories, specially curated to reveal unique connections between unlikely objects in our exhibitions. This means that every Pathway will take you on an adventure; winding and weaving you through the Museum and sharing new, interesting, and perhaps surprising information at each stop.

The app is available for both Apple and Android devices and is compatible with phones and tablets. All the Pathways in the app can be accessed anywhere, so you can check it out where ever you happen to be. But before you decide to stay home, you should know that nothing compares to seeing our objects in person – that’s where the wow moments happen!

We’ll be adding new Pathways regularly, because there is no shortage of compelling connections for the chronically curious at the Museum.

App Features

  • A library of specially curated Pathways tours with new Pathways added regularly
  • A Museum map to keep you on track
  • An events calendar with upcoming programs. You can purchase tickets right in the app
  • Daily schedules for Planetarium shows and manatee presentations

App Tips

  • Connect to our WiFi – when you arrive at the museum connect to our WiFi  SouthFloridaMuseum. It’s free, there’s no password, and your data plan and battery will thank you!
  • Bigger is better! Each tour stop includes photos or video to accompany text. While viewing on a phone is perfectly fine, many visitors enjoy the larger screen of a tablet. So charge yours up and bring it along!
  • Bring headphones/ear buds While our tours are mostly text, a few stops have audio. Audio will play through the speakers if headphones are not plugged in.
  • Wear your step counter!  Pathways are designed to lead you all over the museum. At the end of the day you’ll want to know how many facts per mile you’ve achieved!
