The fourth Italian Open Day opened at 10.00 a.m. and closed at 4.00 p.m. of March 18th, 2022 in Montegrotto Terme where the Butterfly Arc is located. 245 participants visited the Butterfly House. Esapolis and Butterfly Arc can be considered as a single MUS.NET. project partner, whose scientific director, Dr. Moretto, covers both museums under his leadership. The purpose for the Open day was to engage the participants in the activities made possible by the MUS.NET. Installations and by the App designed and created by the start up company Mocchi’s. The Draw Alive has been the first international project developed by the start up company, that has already received many positive feedbacks from the users across the four EU partners. The Open Day was launched by the official greeting of the Mayor of Montegrotto, and the Vice President of the Province of Padova. The Open Day has overlapped the first day of the BA 2022 season which traditionally opens its gates in March and has marked the return of an audience formed by school groups, a good sign after almost two schoolyears in which classes were not allowed to undertake fieldtrips.
On the Open Day on February 19th, 2022, 260 participants visited the Esapolis Museum in Padova, among them 90 paying visitors. The purpose for the Open day was the engagement of the participants in the activities made possible by the MUS.NET. installations. The large majority of visitors belonged to the target of families with young kids. The audience were admitted to the museums in groups of 15 persons. Each group was given a free tour consisting of: delivery of information material, brief explanation of the MUS.NET. project, tour of the museums, video presentation. Visitors appreciated the freedom to roam around the museum with the APP Museum in the Pocket that has around 100 descriptions of as many museum exhibits. The Draw Alive proved successful not only among kids but also with grown ups. The Blind tour was a big hit and therefore is going to be replicated and integrated into the regular museum tours. This experience offers to non – blind persons the possibility to enjoy a deeper bond with the insects on display, many of them living insects, and feel emotions that bring to the fore under stimulated senses.

About 114 visitor attended representing a varied background and several segments. The surveys highlight the general success of the MUS.net project, and that it has met the expectations for which it was developed. The deliverables developed during the project have meant a leap in quality for the segmentation of audiences in the museum. The “Draw Alive” has been a complete success, and the welcome space fulfills its informative function very well.
Not a regular Open Day but a monthlong series of tours from schoolkids and teacher. This is the formula created by the Fundación Santa María la Real del Patrimonio Histórico in Palencia to comply with the strict Corona virus regulations. As a result of the pandemic, it was not just a day when the doors were open, but many days in which, for security reasons, only one class per shift could visit the museum from 10 to 31 March 2022. 445 primary school students and 16 teachers from Aguilar de Campoo visited the museum free of charge and explored it through the tools developed during the MUS.net project. 100% of the teachers rated this activity with 8 points out of 10, with excellent remarks on the section ‘Learn by playing’ and new apps.
The most sought after MUS.NET. installation at the Fundaciòn is the draw alive, attracting both children and grown ups
Coinciding with the celebration of the San Juan Festivities in Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia), the open day will be held on Friday, June 25, during the usual hours of the centre, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 pm. It will consist of guided and free tours that will be held every half hour in which the technological innovations introduced by the Rom will be presented to improve the visitor experience and attract new audiences, with special emphasis on people with disabilities and children. These novelties consist of an user friendly App, a ‘Kids corner’ to “learn by playing” thanks to Augmented Reality and a visitor information space, which includes a welcome video. All of them have been implemented within the framework of the European MUS.NET project, in which the Rom participates, and whose objective is the development and segmentation of audiences to improve the visibility of small museums and attract a greater number of visitors. This is not a traditional guided tour of the monastery. Each shift will last about 20 minutes in which the objectives of MUS.NET will be briefly explained and, above all, the three new functionalities that have been implemented thanks to this initiative: app, visitor information space and ‘Kids corner ‘. Once this presentation is made, the objective is that visitors can visit and get to know the centre through the use of new tools. At the end of the visit, all the people who participate will receive a souvenir gift.
