    I wish I could visit the museum soon.

    Its been along time since my last visit... it was the 70's. The app is a good way to check whats new and going on.

    Disappointing.

    It bogs down the Color, won't install and just trying to get to the point of deleting this app took two reboots. Not at all what I was hoping for.

    Pictures from museum

    This is a very simple app with photos taken by a camera and a short history of the object pictured. O.k., but not too intetesting.

    All Toura products deliver their own wonders

    This one has been especially fine and wide in scope. It is good even without wi-fi.
