OVERVIEW
Bainbridge Island Historical Museum is a very small museum with one main gallery and one gallery. 

The main navigation of the page of the mobile guide is separated into one section. The section features all of the mini sections within the exhibit, such as the logging industry. All of the museum exhibitions and sections are located within the same area. The user will be able to navigate the different sections based on physical descriptions within the space which highlight which section they should select if they want to use the mobile guide. 

By clicking into a section, the mobile guide will take the visitors to a page sectioned by different artifacts within that section. Due to the limited amount of objects carried by the sections, all of the smaller objects will be featured on the page. Once the user clicks the artifact they would like to learn more about, the user will be directed to the artifact page which has five sections: picture(s) of the artifact, video explanation with link for transcript, audio tour with link for transcript, any additional information, and navigation parameters which will direct the user back to the industry page or to multiple perspectives page for that artifact. 

The multiple perspectives page, designed by the Multiple Perspectives group, features three sections. The first section is a picture of the artifact and the second section features the different perspectives of an artifact, it includes a name of the interpreter, their job and organization, a quote about their perspective, and an audio description of their perspective. The third section features the navigation parameters which will direct the user back to the different community pages or the specific artifact page. 

ACCESSIBILITY CHALLENGE
Bainbridge Island Historical Museum is a smaller site with a lot of smaller artifacts, as such, it becomes harder for the museum to provide descriptions and accessible material for each individual site. At the same time, COVID-19 restrictions don't allow for the level of interaction one would need to have in order to engage with the artificially meaningful way. 

The mobile guide template will connect those stories in a way that doesn’t require the guest to physically interact with each material, but will also provide necessary information regarding each material. 
MOCK-UPS
Mock-ups are created in Figma. Please refer to this link to the Figma File. When you visit the page, there is a Pages panel on the upper left hand side. In that panel, you’ll see a separate page for each of the sites we are working with. Fort Ticonderoga is the first page in the panel. 
Clicking on a specific site’s name will show the mockups we currently have for that site.
