We are using the QR code to implement an audio tour in the "Bugbook Historical Microcomputer Museum" in Floyd Virginia.  This is working very nicely in the museum and is an on line web display. Each display or display case has the a QR code attached and just a click on the QR code with your smart phone brings up a photo and audio description of the item.

Using the QR codes in our museum has been a real nice addition for visitors when the curator is not present to give tour or the folks just want to browse the displays on there own.
