The goal of this work is to provide tools that promote social interactions between visitors through cooperative and educational games. In this paper, we describe how to support collaborative learning in museum visits and show an example application based on mobile palmtop systems. To this end, we have developed a system that is able to support collaborative and independent activities, and offer context-aware content.
