Hammady R., Ma M., Temple N.
Augmented Reality (AR) technology is one of the fastest growing areas in the computing field and it has pervaded many applications in the market including museums. However, there is a need for a survey exploring the effectiveness of augmented reality as a communication medium in museums. This paper reviews the development of Augmented Reality as a mass communication  tool in museums. We introduce a communication model which would work as a roadmap building AR guidance system with ensuring this system will be a successful method of communication with users. Besides, we propose a novel way to enhance the visitors’ experience and learning by combining AR with games in museums.
