Extract from the brochure on BalticMuseums project results:

Statements about the Multi-lingual eGuide with cross-border shared content for oceanographic museums
Olga Zaliene
Director of the Lithuanian Sea Museum in Klaipeda
"Sharing both multimedia contents and translation efforts, and most crucially experience and expertise with our partners from Poland, Germany and Russia is the reason why today we are the first museum in Lithuania equipped with eGuides. Providing six different languages, we have now a much better service for international visitors, who with 60% constitute the majority of our guests."
Daina Siauciulyte
Museum visitor from Vilnius
"Using an eGuide to explore a museum – what a new and mind-expand- ing experience! I could select the tour according to my own interests and receive additional information about my favourite topics. The convenience of an individual tour at my own pace, accompanied at the same time with lots of facts and materials, has fascinated me. I will definitely visit the part- ner museums in Poland, Germany and Russia as well. There is so much more to explore!"
Statements about the Cross-border online platform for oceanographic museums
Gra?yna Niedoszytko
Education specialist from NMFRI Gdynia Aquarium
"With the joint online platform developed by the BalticMuseums’ cross-border team, we can offer our visitors information in six different languages. The cross-border expertise, creativity and resources helped everybody to design new appealing offers, and attract new visitors. Yearly, we welcome now about 350.000 guests to our aquarium, not only from Poland but from many neighbouring countries as well."
Barbara Kriese
Museum explorer from Rostock
"I always prepare my holiday trips by extensive research on the Internet. At balticmuseums.net, I have found useful information about oceano- graphic museums in Poland, Lithuania, Germany and Russia in my own language. I was particularly impressed by the virtual galleries, allowing me to explore the exhibitions online. I definitely felt attracted. I guess that this is a very effective way of drawing one’s attention to certain destinations."
