A Mobile Guide designed for your visitors.

Gesso believes that art and culture should be accessible and inclusive to all, tech should be a bridge and not a barrier. We create visitor-centered mobile guides that museums of all sizes can afford and leverage.

Digital Engagement that inspires.

We've consulted 100+ museums and their visitors to create an intuitive audio guide platform that inspires visitors near and far.


Launch a branded mobile audio guide experience on iOS, Android and mobile web, in minutes, not months. We'll maintain the tech platform so you don't have to.

Content Production

Our team is available for hire to produce podcasts, audio tours and exhibition videos. If you wish to make your own content, our museum partners have shared some tips and how-to's.

Beyond the Walls

Mobile guides aren't just for offering a more meaningful visitor experience onsite, they can serve as a primer or virtual tour prior to visits. We believe a museum is more than its collection, and can present relevant audio walks that contextualize stories beyond museum walls.

It was easy to use. I like the information as it made the experiences more meaningful. It also made me want to stay in the galleries longer.”
