How Historic: RFID in Museums & Archaeology

RFID in Museums, Art History & Archaeology


RFID technology has been implemented in a number of ways at historical sites across the world.


  • A prison museum in Denmark builds attendee experience by assigning each patron a particular prisoner identity via RFID badge. The badge triggers different reactions and happenings at the various exhibits for a more immersive visit.


  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York utilizes RFID to monitor the condition of artwork. More specifically, RFID sensors monitor temperature, humidity, and general environmental conditions around the paintings and artistic pieces.


  • A national museum in Taiwan is using RFID to monitor inventory and movement as well as entry and exit into 24 art warehouses using portal technology. In addition, the facility also tracks its B2B loans of paintings and artifacts.
