We used to get in a real flap trying to explain the O to people. So instead here’s a delightful diagram for you to digest at your leisure. Or ignore entirely. We don’t make the rules.

Usually we hand out O devices to visitors but we can’t do this at the moment, for obvious, pandemic-themed reasons. Please download the O to your iPhone or Android device, and bring your own headphones, too.

We should probably also mention:

  • Join the queue on the O to enter some exhibits. You can then roam about and the O will notify you when it’s time to make your way to the entrance.
  • Hit ‘Save your visit’ when you’re in the museum, and access everything you’ve looked at from home.
  • The O supports VoiceOver and screen reader functionality for people with low vision or dyslexia.
