Abstract— People often regard the museum as a boring place, something old-fashioned, not interesting
place to go, and do not have a correlation with the present. In fact the museum is a good place as a source of
learning about human history and culture. This research try to build museum interactive edutainment
(education and entertainment) application using mobile phone apps and QR code. This application will
provide additional interactive information about the museum artefacts. Museum visitors could find this
