This paper presents a novel heritage museum guide framework that provides personalized digital heritage contents to help understand the culture of immigration country. Particularly, this framework focuses on helping married immigrant women in a situation of social exclusion to easily understand a different culture heritage easily by providing similar digital heritage contents of her home country. To develop this guide framework, the following core steps are integrated: (i) collect data, such as logs, Facebook feeds, and frequency of app usage from a users’ smartphone, (ii) build users preference profiles through the analysis of collected data, (iii) display similar digital heritage contents of their home country via a head-mounted mixed reality display. From the proposed framework, we expect that the framework will make it easier to understand unfamiliar cultural heritage to married immigrant women who is having difficulty adapting to immigration. Furthermore, her children also can utilize these contents to understand and learn their mother’s culture, which can create an empathy between the mother and her children.
