Ayala Museum partnered with Power Mac Store and made an awesome exhibit for everyone. It’s called The Diorama Experience. Lawrence Sy, Power Mac Center Marketing Director, together with his team were in full force when they signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Ayala Museum on Thursday morning, July 11. The signing of MOA was witnessed by people from the media and guests. Power Mac Center, the leading Apple concept store, a recognized Apple Premium Re-seller, Authorized Education Re-seller, Authorized Training Center, and Authorized Service Provider in the Philippines, donated more than 50 iPod touch devices for sensory-rich Diorama Exerience‘s Audio Guide.
The Diorama Experience includes a one and a half hour visit covering 2nd and 4th floor and is Ayala Museum’s commitment to preserve and present the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines through dioramas. The tour is open daily to all visitors.
“Our partnership with Power Mac Center is in line with the museum’s efforts to spread awareness and appreciation of Philippine heritage,” said Ayala Museum Senior Director Mariles Gustilo during the signing of agreement.
The Audio Guide is part of the tour which includes a headset and an iPod touch to be used by visitors for a much exciting viewing and learning experience. The use of the Audio Guide is optional, though. Each Audio Guide set are for rent for only Php 75.
The rent covers for the maintenance of the exhibit; regular updates and upgrades; and funding for future additions to the tour.
The Diorama Experience chronicles important milestones in the country’s past. The Audio Guide comes in Filipino Tagalog and English version plus accompanying script guides found in the menu of the iPod touch.
