This is a project I did for my HCI class back in the Berkeley days. We need to think back to 2001 before everyone had a smartphone.  The handheld computers back then did not have any connectivity without a very expensive WiFi card.  No Bluetooth, GPS, and very limited storage.
The project was aimed at making the museum experience more interactive.  Our solution for location based awareness was to bar code objects, and have content tied to that bar code.  We had videos, a central comments server (visitors can comment on a particular piece), and ability to send all the info and links to their personal email account. 
These are a couple of slides from the class presentation.
