How Mia gets 33% of visitors to their app with help from Beyonce

In early 2022, Mia launched a web-based mobile experience dedicated to enhancing Special Exhibitions. One year later, with three successful special exhibitions launched, the museum team now reaches over 33% of visitors through the special exhibitions mobile guide.

Visitors engage with the user-friendly mobile guide that shares multimedia interpretation, including curator-led audio tours, Baroque harpsichord paired with the original engraved score, and thoughtfully DJ’d Beyonce playlists.

Gretchen Halverson, Anna Dilliard and Rosalind Stobart share the story of its success.
