Please Touch the Exhibit is an iPad app created to celebrate the 10th birthday of Melbourne Museum, one of Australia's largest museums.

Content was drawn from across the museum's diverse collections and experiences. Presented as 10 themes, the publication presents some of the best loved objects as well as getting up close to some of our smaller items.

Counted amongst one of our industries first forays into iPad development, Please Touch was a collaborative project across our Collections, Curatorial, Marketing and Online teams. All content was gathered in-house, with design and production provided by local Melbourne company Cloud 10 Communications.
