  • I’m back at the museum

    By RDGdenver
    After seeing the exhibit twice, both in Berlin and Brooklyn, this app is exactly what I was waiting for! If there were any areas you felt you were rushed, or areas you really loved, you’ll feel you’re back at the museum! It’s an absolute *must* for any Bowie fan - I’m re-immersed in the entire experience, from costumes and photos to the music and videos. If this is your first dive into the exhibit, you’ll be swimming, “like the dolphins can swim!”

    I saw David Bowie Is at the Brooklyn Museum and loved it. This app helps me to relive that amazing exhibit again and again! I especially like the ability to “move” abound the exhibit to see it from different angles.
  • What a beautiful tribute.

    By Spasin
    David would be Proud of this I think. It’s cutting edge, detailed, interesting, beautiful to look at, hear and do whatever those electrical things do to our brain that make them happy. A brilliant tribute and APP to a brilliant man.
