Different museums and cultural heritage institutions are seeking new ways to improve access to their artefacts and collections. The huge impact of the digital revolution shed some light on diverse approaches to minimize the visitor’s museum experience disruption and enhance the accessibility to the exhibits. This paper describes the design of a sensor system by improving the access to the cultural resources adopting a non invasive and low cost technology. The study will provide new suggestions to analyze visitors’ behaviour and their needs and design new visiting trails for the museum.
