Art and Technology
Crystal Bridges offers several technological resources our guests can access here at the Museum, out on the trails, or at home.
Crystal Bridges App
Download the Museum app to your Apple iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone and let our audio tour guide you through the galleries. Each of the stops on the tour includes a high-resolution image, full label copy, and audio or video clips featuring curators, preparators, or conservators. The Crystal Bridges app is sponsored by Cox Communication.
Don't have an Apple device? Check one out from Guest Services while you're at the Museum for free!
Check out Crystal Bridges' iTunes U site and choose from dozens of audio and video offerings, including lectures by artists and art historians, interviews with curators and other staff members, and video recordings of all of our many gallery talks, all for free! We are adding new content all the time, so subscribe to get the latest content updates.
Eco-boxes are outdoor audio boxes you power yourself with a hand crank. Audio recordings provide information about a range of subjects: from native plants, to local history, to outdoor sculptures. The first Eco-box is installed on the Tulip Tree Trail, near Crystal Spring. Four additional Eco-boxes are scheduled to be installed in the months ahead. Eco-boxes are sponsored by the Coleman Company.
