The South Carolina State Museum no longer needs tour guides, cell phones are in charge now.  The Daily Gamecock reports that cell phones are replacing old tape players to tell the visitors about the Museum exhibits.


The museum launched an up-to-date and cheap method of “digital tourism” in March when it set up a telephone number visitors can call to get information about the latest exhibits.

Visitors can call the number anytime from anywhere; it’s not limited to the museum itself.

Currently, the cell phone “tour” is only available for one exhibit, the “Edmund Yaghjian: A Retrospective” collection. LINK
