The Halle Heart Children’s Museum recently launched public hours thanks in large part to a donation from Insight that enabled us to install video kiosks. The kiosks provide visitors with a self-guided tour option, which along with some new features make the museum a great place to bring the kids anytime. Public hours are Monday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m. and beginning in January we’ll be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. as well. And at just $5 per person for adults and children four and up its an inexpensive way to learn about health and have fun.

Here’s a sneak peek at the all new welcome video that greets visitors during public hours!

Video Kiosks to Bring Self-Guided Tours to Museum

Perhaps one of the best features of the Halle Heart Children’s Museum is that guests who visit the museum are treated to a tour by one of our specially-trained Heart Guides. The interaction between the visitor and the Heart Guide creates a powerful learning experience.

Yet as the museum begins to expand its reach and moves toward open public hours (more news about this to come soon), visitors will need another way to experience the museum. With that in mind, the museum is preparing to install video kiosks to provide visitors with self-guided tours.

Thanks in large part to a generous donation by Tempe-based IT company Insight, six video kiosks are on their way from a manufacturer in North Carolina and will be installed in the next few weeks. Each kiosk will provide visitors with a short video with information about the museum and details on how to interact with each exhibit. The self-guided tours should be fully operational by early autumn.

The kiosks will feature the museum’s mascot Lub Dub decked out as “superhero” the Red Crusader.

Stay tuned for more information about the video kiosk project as well as details about more exciting changes coming soon to the Halle Heart Children’s Museum.
