The Museum Room, Apple iPod Tour

apple-tour.jpgApple’s latest iPod Tour focuses on museums and features SFMoMA’s Artcasts, Chateau de Versailles, and the Miami Metrozoo. It’s nice to see Apple featuring these museum podcasts, although I was a bit disappointed when I visited The Museum Room in the iTunes store to see all of the offerings. There are some excellent podcasts here from museums like the Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate, Hirshorn Museum, but there are only twenty, and none of them are from science museums. Apple, did you really have to include the Dr. Pepper Museum?

While it is great to see museums receive this kind of attention from Apple (they are #76 in popularity among all Websites) hopefully we’ll see a larger and more diverse set of offerings in the future. (Thanks to Craig from KQED Interactive for passing this site along.)
