Museon den Haag installs XIM Gen4

As an interactive museum for culture and science with an educational mission and an interdisciplinary approach, Museon is keen to inspire people to explore the world around them and develop their own knowledge and capacities. Museon achieves this mission by offering school groups and the general public a dynamic learning environment in a museum setting. As an intermediary for cultural education, Museon is therefore a valuable complement to the formal education system.

It was therefore natural for Museon to decide that Bluetooth beacons were a way to deepen the level of visitor engagement in the museum’s exhibits, and to provide a richer educational experience. At the same time, they were refurbishing their lighting in order to save energy and improve lighting control. After seeing Xicato XIM Gen4 at an event at the Van Gogh, and especially upon the recommendations of both lighting designer Joost de Beij and museum app developer Tapme Media, who was shown the Xicato solution, Museon was convinced.
In fact, Museon was so interested in the XIM Gen4 that they agreed to be one of Xicato’s Beta sites. After installing hundreds of fixtures, they have provided invaluable feedback to the Xicato team, ensuring that the final product was ready for general launch in November.

The lighting was installed in September and October, and the opening in October featured a live telecast by UN Secretary General, Ban Kee Moon.
