"Tag My LaM" is a new technology for museum visitors' use on their smartphones. Undertaken with IBM and Urbilog, the application enables visitors to stroll through the museum’s sculpture park and hear information in the language of their choice about the closest nearby sculpture on their smartphones. For visually impaired visitors, an audio version of the information is also available.
