Texas Time Travel Mobile Tours Wins National Interpretive Media Award!

The National Association for Interpretation awarded the THC’s Texas Time Travel Tours a 2016 Interpretive Digital Media Award in recognition of our mobile app’s delivery of natural, cultural, and historical interpretive services. The award was presented during the 2016 NAI National Conference held in Corpus Christi. 

Take a few minutes to explore Texas Time Travel Tours. The mobile app provides statewide themed tours that guide heritage travelers to Texas cultural and historic sites and locations. The tours enrich the visitor experience at included sites and locations via engaging audio tracks, galleries of historic and contemporary images, and documentary style short videos that feature real stories of real Texans.  One part travel guide, one part historical reference, Texas Time Travel Tours maintains Texas histories while bringing our State’s most cherished stories to life. Learn more about Texas Time Travel Tours through the interactive content found at www.thc.texas.gov/MobileApp.

We are honored to receive NAI’s recognition of Texas Time Travel Tours. The National Association for Interpretation (NAI) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) professional association for those involved in the interpretation of natural and cultural heritage resources. Learn more about NAI at www.interpnet.com. Though our internal staff served as the lead producers of the mobile app, no work worth mention is ever created in a vacuum. Texas community members, business owners, land stewards, cultural leaders, scholars, heritage stakeholders, and skilled consultants all came together to produce this Texas resource; we announce this honor on behalf of all those who inspired and informed Texas Time Travel Tours.
