MUSEUM NEWS   THE TICKER MoAF Exhibits Come to Life with New Audio Tour This summer, the Museum launched a 12-stop audio tour of its permanent exhibits. The tour was developed in partnership with Antenna — a leading innovative multi-media story-telling company — and is narrated by a variety of experts including the Museum’s president and curators, as well as CNN founding financial editor Myron Kandel and architectural historian Damien Cregeau. The audio tour features the backstories of several of the Museum’s most popular collections and exhibitions, including objects from the Crash of ’29; a stock certificate issued to Ponzi scheme artist Bernie Madoff; rare high-denomination currency; and the solid gold and jewel encrusted Monopoly set by artist Sidney Mobell, on loan from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. “There is so much more to these objects than we can include on printed labels, so the audio guides bring the exhibits to life in new and exciting ways,” said Museum President David Cowen. “I believe the guides will really enhance our overall visitor experience.” The audio guides are available for visitors to rent on a first come, first served basis for $2 per person. MoAF members and visitors with visual or other impairments will be granted free usage of the guides.
