'Museum of Yesterday' is a Brazilian-made port exploration app that is designed to use a combination of multimedia content and smartphone convenience to turn seemingly boring historic information into an extremely engaging and interactive experience, specifically in the context of the Rio de Janeiro port.

The port in question has a very colourful past that can be navigated via the Museum of Yesterday port exploration app. The app encourages scatter-brained tourists and students to focus by not allowing them to zoom out or move the map about; instead, the app only displays information about the area that is close to you.

By teasing users to move around, this port exploration app introduces a sense of mystery and adventure into the process of learning about the port, keeping users engaged and active for longer periods of time.
