The systems of a warship and its history is fairly complex. I was delighted to see how well the Guru employees absorbed Iowa’s story and managed to present it in a fun and entertaining way for our visitors’ additional enjoyment.- DAVE WAY , Head Curator of Battleship Iowa
The Guru application was the perfect state of the art solution in sharing Battleship Iowa’s story to our museum visitors. Our staff is extremely pleased with our new tour app and we would highly recommend Guru’s services to other museums.- DAVE WAY , Head Curator of Battleship Iowa

One question, why don’t all museums have an app like this? So fun!- Marie, San Diego Museum of Art App User
I have never heard art talked about in this way. I love it!- Kevin, San Diego Museum of Art App User
My husband does not like to read, and misses a lot because he cannot connect with the art piece without important information. As a result he is usually bored and finds a place to sit while I enjoy the art. Your app changed that for him…he loved the fact that he now had a narrator/guide in his hand who not only provided information, but did it in an interesting and often humorous manner! His experience that day was eye-opening and he had a wonderful time!- Sue, San Diego Museum of Art App User
Holding up my phone and seeing buildings from the past blew my mind. Not only that, but my kids LOVE the Danny Boy tour.- Michelle, Little Italy SD App User
It was incredible seeing this massive ship come to life through veteran stories and historical photos. This app made the visit so much more than I thought it would be!- Jason, Battleship IOWA App User
