USELESS When Visiting the PMA

I downloaded the podcast and loaded it onto my iPhone, as well as, my kids' iPod nanos thinking we could use podcast while viewing the various objects being described.

Once we arrived at the Museum, it was very clear very quickly that I was the only person they had ever met who wanted to do this. The first problem is that this Highlights tour is VERY different from the Museum's highlights audio tour -- different objects, different stops, different numbering system, etc. If you think you will be able to find the podcast stops by using a museum map of the various galleries, you will again be disappointed. This also will not line up.

I was finally told by a staff member that the "official" answer is that the podcast was meant for home listening and not for viewing the actual objects at the museum. Yes, the staff is that incompetent! The left hand clearly does not communicate with the right hand.

If I could rate this podcast with zero stars, I would.
