Did you know the Gibbes offers a cell phone audio tour? And the best part is that it’s free! The audio tour allows you to access in-depth information about the museum collection and selected objects on view from your personal cell phone. This format offers the flexibility to explore the museum at your own pace and hear directly from artists, the museum director, and even Mayor Joe Riley. Who knew your cell phone could be so educational?
