The MET Kid's Museum Map
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a new interactive museum map designed especially for young visitors. The MetKids Map allows children to discover some of the fun and interesting things that they can find when they visit the museum. It also includes lots of inspiring and creative activities for kids to do during and after their trip to the MET.
The hand-drawn map of the MET has been made interactive using the OpenLayers mapping platform. It contains a number of map markers. The yellow markers seem to indicate some of the main important locations in the museum. The red markers show the locations of some of the exhibits which you can see when you visit the museum.
If you select a marker on the map you can read more about the selected exhibit or room. These descriptions include photos, audio, video clips and suggestions of fun activities that children can do in response to the museum's exhibits.
