Nintendo At The Louvre

Nintendo At The Louvre

April 23, 2012 - The Louvre museum in Paris, France has struck a partnership with game console manufacturer Nintendo. As part of the deal, there are now 1,500 handheld Nintendo 3DS consoles available for rent at the museum. The devices are loaded with software that enables them to act as an interactive audio tours for visitors to the museum. Commentary from expert art historians on the masterpieces in the museum are available in seven languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Korean and Japanese). This is not the first time that the Nintendo consoles are being put to this kind of use. They are already in use at Japanese attractions such as the National Museum of Western Art and the Shiguredon poetry museum. Other international institutions such as the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain and the Museum of Modern Art in New York have embraced the iPhone as the vehicle to provide interactive art tours at their locations.
