Vikingaliv is an experience museum in Stockholm dedicated to the Viking Age and experiencing it in a fast, modern and interesting way.
They wanted a mobile guide solution that was easy to get started with and would match their graphic profile. In addition to this it was important to find a long-term solution that would cater to an international audience as they have many tourists visiting from abroad.
Check out the case film we did together with Vikingaliv to learn more about the collaboration!
We don’t have favourites. Well, that’s a lie- of course we do. And when it comes to personalised maps, we really like Coastal Past’s illustrations.
Maps – What’s the Story?
If you have an own (native) app, you have the option of customising your map or using a Mapbox link. Using a Mapbox link means you have an existing map “base”. You can, however, choose what information the map should include, such as names of places and types of roads. Also, you have the option of changing colours and icons.
If you want to really brand your […]
We are excited that Sunne kommun has decided to get an app. Sagolika Sunne sees this technology as a helping hand for visitors to find their way to the many gems it has to offer. Sunne is Selma Lagerlöf’s home region and there’s plenty to see and discover in the area. The app will make it easier for visitors to experience Sunne by implementing e.g. an event calendar and incorporating exciting stories about the region’s culture and nature.
The app will be launched in the spring of 2019. We look forward to getting to know Sunne and Selma better!

The Gotland Museum is the Mecca of Gotland’s cultural history. The museum recently launched a new app to complement their exhibitions. Henrik Ramberg, the Project Manager, tells us about their app aspirations: “We hope to lift stories and objects that for various reasons have ended up in the dark. An ambition we have is to link the stories with the physical locations on the island where the stories and objects come from”.
The Gotland Museum will have 10 OnSpotStory PLUS units to offer visitors. These are all-inclusive solutions that replace the traditional audio guide device with a modern smartphone that you can lend or rent to your visitors.
The destination Läckö-Kinnekulle is located in Skaraborg between Sweden’s two biggest lakes Vänern and Vättern. The area has plenty of beautiful nature to offer, especially for cycling, hiking and paddling. They’ve decided to let tourists explore this fascinating landscape with a new app, starting out with three tours: Kållandsö and Kinnekulle by car, and a city walk around Lidköping.
Keeping visitors in the know with an events calendar
The Läckö-Kinnekulle app will include an events calendar, a great way of informing visitors about what is happening in the area. We will create a software-function that regularly updates and syncs the calendar in the app from their EPI. The software will get data via an API from Läckö-Kinnekulle’s EPI […]
Friday afternoon offered not only sunshine and Cypriote antiquities, but a good meeting with Mathias Bergendahl at Medelhavsmuseet. The museum is in the process of taking their digital and marketing strategy to the next level. They want to offer visitors an experience with a low threshold, where the different information channels – signs, website, audioguide etc. – interact sensibly and seamlessly, from the first image that meets you as you come into the museum.
Having seen an increase of 33% visitors in the last quarter, the museum is doing something right. Mathias puts it down to a new marketing strategy, coordinated together with the program and exhibition departments. Investing in moving image material, making well-produced films about the museums, […]
1. Custom is King
Museums and tourist destinations continue to offer visitors options that tailor the visit to specific needs and desires. From what we see, customisation will continue to be in high demand. The attention economy we find ourselves in makes us increasingly choosy and our expectations on any experience continue to grow ever higher.
When entering a museum or tourist destination, visitors may encounter certain annoyances such as long queues, being short on time, a mobile phone running out of battery, needing the toilet, not knowing where to start etc. These situations can be overwhelming and digital tools have a clear role in providing assistance, for example via an app in your phone or an audio guide device handed to […]
