How Is RFID Being Used for Archaeology and at Museums?

RFID is used in a variety of ways in museums. One way is to create interactive experiences for visitors. At the Horsens Prison Museum in Denmark, for example, visitors can receive a badge with a specific historical figure's name and image on it. They can then follow that prisoner's experiences through the prison. A passive HF RFID transponder inside the badge has a serial number associated with the specific prisoner, so when a visitor places the badge near a reader corresponding with an exhibit, it calls up a video associated with that particular prisoner (see RFID Locks Up Visitor Interest at Horsens Prison Museum).
