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 app for free to your own Android or Apple device and let our audio tour guide you through the galleries. Several tours are available, including four tour options for the permanent galleries, an architecture tour, and tours of current temporary exhibitions. Each of the stops on the tours 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 a compatible device of your own? Check one out from Guest Services while you’re at the Museum for free!

This free app for Apple and Android devices offers interactive trail maps, art and plant guides, and audio-tour information about many of the fascinating features of Crystal Bridges’ grounds.

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.
