The Power of Storytelling
The BARDEUM Mobile App offers the next generation of audio / visual tours by allowing visitors to not just see the sites, but step inside their stories.

Stories offer us the chance to think and feel; to imagine another time and place. Our tours allow you to Step Inside a Story of a true event as our storytellers guide you through an historical site or Go Beyond the Frame at museums.

"If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten."
