"If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten." Rudyard Kipling
BARDEUM is a mash-up of the storytelling travelling BARD and the MUSEUM. Like the travelling Bard, we aim to make your travels informative, captivating and unforgettable.
Our goal is to create a better - more educational - more entertaining - way for people to visit museums and historical sites across the globe.

“Stories are the way to capture the hopes, dreams and visions of a culture. The truth of the powerful and irresistible story illustrates in a way data can’t begin to capture. It’s the stories that make you understand.”
— Carl Sessions Stepp, professor, Philip Merrill College of Journalism
Research shows that we all learn better through storytelling. Those facts on tiny plaques offer data. The goal of data is to impart information. The goal of stories, however, is to impart experience.
"Data uses language that points you there. Stories use language that puts you there." - Roy Peter Clark, vice president and senior scholar, The Poynter Institute.
