As science and technology are advancing, computers become so small and powerful that they are now embedded into mobile telephones. Not only a computer but also so many sensors are installed in a smartphone. Making use of those devices, they have developed so many apps running on smartphones. Museum guide we are introducing in this paper is one of those apps. To the best of our knowledge, Museum Guide is the first indoor-location-based, context-aware, and video-on-demand app.
