All About the Dreamland Wax Museum Augmented Reality App
Download the App
Have you downloaded the app yet? If not, please head over to the App Store or Google Play Store and download the latest version. This is a big app, so it is advised that you download the application when you have access to wifi.
When you are ready, come back and learn about how the app functions and what it has to offer!
By logging into the app once, you are able to earn and redeem points for discounts off admission to the Dreamland Wax Museum and the museum Gift Shop. If you are already logged into Facebook, this step will be very simple. If you prefer to log in via email, we have that option for you too.
Explore the App
When you first arrive at the home screen, you’ll see a stack of buttons that lead you to a variety of options within the app. It’s from this screen that you will launch the AR Around Boston, AR at the Museum, selfie frames, stickers for your photos, ticket purchases and a place for you to redeem the points you have collected. If you ever get lost, don’t forget the Instructions button at the very bottom of the page, which will walk you through the main functions of the app any time you need it.
You Can See Benjamin Franklin Anywhere!
As a demo built within the app itself, you can launch the Benjamin Franklin Augmented Reality experience from anywhere you are! Hear Mr. Franklin welcome you to the city of Boston and the Dreamland Wax Museum even before you arrive. Be sure to press the movie clapboard icon to hear his welcome message.
10 Spots Around Boston
The app is actually split into two specific sets of augmented reality experiences. There are 10 spots around the city of Boston and 10 experiences inside the Dreamland Wax Museum. The 10 locations around Boston will take you to some of the most recognizable and historically significant locations in the city. Remember that each location you visit and collect the experience will earn discounts off admission up to FREE admission to the Dreamland Wax Museum!
10 Experiences at the Museum
The app’s 10 experiences inside the museum are meant to enhance the context and story around some of our most popular figures. See instruments dance around Arthur Fiedler, guard Paul Pierce as he aims for the basket, and hover over an AR map of all of the major battles of the American Civil War. We even have a few surprises for those willing to fully explore the museum. It could get prehistoric at Dreamland!
