The management of the village works incredibly hard to suspend time at this place….except for this…technology.
How so? Well, despite standing strong on their original intent on not changing anything in the village, there seems to be some changes at the museum. The authorities have decided to include a QR Code at the museum to enhance visitors’ experience via a video tour, as opposed to the conventional audio tour.
Originally, as with many other museums all over the world, visitors will get the chance to purchase their own audio tour, which serves as a guide to the visitors, introducing them to different things as they physically explore a place. But now, when the visitors of Pinellas County museum visits, they can scan a QR Code (optional) at the entrance and the code will load up an online video which will serve as a guide as they take a slow, walking tour around the museum. The video, apparently, also introduces many significant historical and culture-related information to the visitors.
Exhibits at the museum includes Pinellas Passport, Collections Corner, Christopher Still Prints, Clues to Florida’s History, Pieces of the Past and Structures at Heritage Village.
The Pinellas Village Museum is located at 11909 125th Street N, Largo, FL 33774 and they are open from Wednesdays to Saturdays from 10am and closing at 4pm. On Sundays, the museum, when there are fewer people, they are open from 1pm to 4pm.
