A museum guide system which is based on handheld devices (e.g. PDAs, short for Personal Digital Assistants) is presented in this paper. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is used to navigate and get the index number of exhibit. Compared to traditional guide systems, such as tape or CD guide machine, this system provides visitors good visual and audio experience with multimedia technologies. Visitors can either roam at their pleasures and browse the expositive information from the device themselves, or sit on chairs searching for information and relevant interesting knowledge.
