The Haida Gwaii Museum in British Columbia has partnered with the American Museum of Natural History in New York to explore a truly unique way for visitors to experience the American Museum of Natural History’s Hall of Northwest Coast Indians exhibit. A telepresence robot, named BeamPro SPS, acts as a tour guide, greeting visitors, telling them about the artefacts, answering questions and teaching them about Haida Gwaii culture and traditions.
