You may have heard of a QR code, but have you heard of a "QRPedia" code? The Children's Museum of Indianapolis is the first museum in the U.S. to use "QRpedia codes". Next time you're in National Geographic Treasures of the Earth, scan the QR code to read about the history of Captain Kidd's cannon in Wikipedia. If English is not your native language, our special "QRPedia" codes will display the version of the article in your phone's language, if the article has been translated into that language.
The museum partners with Wikipedia because our mission is to create extraordinary learning experiences for families. We know that Wikipedia is a resource used by millions of people around the world who are seeking information. By working with volunteers in the Wikipedia community, we're able to improve the quality of information in Wikipedia articles related to the museum. This ensures that children and adults who are learning about our objects from Wikipedia are getting the best learning experience possible.
The museum has contributed many images of our Collections objects to Wikipedia to be used in articles. The museum has over 120,000 objects in its collection. Only a small number of those objects are on display at any given time. Having images in Wikipedia gives people across the world the opportunity to learn about our objects virtually.
Lori Phillips has served as the museum's Wikipedian in Residence since August 2010. A graduate student in the Museum Studies program at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, she is the longest running Wikipedian in Residence, and the second in the world to hold the title.
