George Washington, the first president, was inaugurated in 1789 after a unanimous vote of the Electoral College. William Henry Harrison spent the shortest time in office with 32 days in 1841. Franklin D. Roosevelt spent the longest with over twelve years, but died shortly into his fourth term in 1945; he is the only president to have served more than two terms. A constitutional amendment, affecting presidents after Harry Truman, was passed to limit the number of times an individual can be elected president. Andrew Jackson, the seventh president, was the first to be elected by men of all classes in 1828 after most laws barring non-land-owners from voting were repealed. Warren Harding was the first elected after women gained voting rights in 1920. History records four presidents – John Q. Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison and George W. Bush – who lost the popular vote but assumed office. John F. Kennedy has been the only president of Roman Catholic faith, and the current president, Barack Obama, is the first president of recent African descent.

About the app:
• An audio guide – including the voices of Museum staff members – describes each gallery and provides highlights of exhibits and architecture. Text-based transcripts can also be viewed. Image galleries and video create a rich, interactive experience.
• A “Near Me” mode connects your device through low-frequency “iBeacons” to over 120 Universal Access Points (UAPs) located throughout the Museum. Designed to assist visitors who are blind or have low vision, this feature provides an opportunity for all visitors to experience key exhibit highlights. You can also type in the UAP number to access the exhibit information from anywhere. This is the first use of iBeacon technology in a Canadian cultural institution, and the largest such use in the world.
• An interactive panorama feature from the Israel Asper Tower of Hope and the Indigenous Perspectives terrace includes information about nearby Winnipeg landmarks through “hot spots” or blue dots superimposed on a panoramic image. This function is available in real time through the camera on your mobile device (“augmented reality”) or in a panorama view.
• An interactive “mood meter” lets you share how you feel as you move through the Museum’s spaces. A first for any museum in the world, this colourful feature provides an easy way for you to provide us with useful feedback about your experience, all along the way – and see how others felt.
• An interactive map of the Museum’s public spaces helps you find your way. The map can tell you where you are, show you the floorplans, or guide you to your destination with text-based directions.
• Online purchasing for tickets and membership is available if you want to skip the ticket line.
• Information to plan your visit includes an event calendar, descriptions of the Boutique, ERA Bistro, guided tours, accessibility features, how to make a donation, and connecting to the Museum via social media.
• Full accessibility is an important aspect of the app and self-guided tour. Information flows from over 120 Universal Access Points (UAP) when using the “Near Me” function to ensure that visitors who are blind or have low vision have a rich experience in the Museum. At each UAP, Braille, tactile numbers and “cane-stop” floor strips alert visitors that information is available on key exhibit highlights. For visitors who are Deaf or hard of hearing, the app can be viewed in ASL or LSQ and includes additional sign-language content for several exhibits.
The app was developed by the Museum and Acoustiguide, a world leader in creation of site-specific custom apps and contents for museums and other cultural institutions.

A Companion Walking Tour
Produced in conjunction with the Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust’s exhibit Emma Lazarus: Poet of Exiles, this companion mobile tour is a wonderful way to see New York through the eyes of one of its most fascinating residents, Emma Lazarus. We invite the public to walk in her footsteps and experience nineteenth-century New York in a very contemporary way.
Using excerpts from Emma’s lively correspondences and works, listeners will come to know her literary life, her social circles, and her groundbreaking message for immigrants. The tour is narrated by Julianna Margulies and includes a reading by Meryl Streep of “The New Colossus”—Emma’s famous poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty.
Once downloaded the app requires a short initial network connection (cellular or Wi-Fi) for content download. From that moment on, the app works 100% offline.
The Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre was created in 1979 by a group of Holocaust survivors with the support of members of the Jewish community and Federation CJA. Its mission is to educate people of all ages and backgrounds about the Holocaust, while sensitizing the public to the universal perils of antisemitism, racism, hate and indifference. The Centre operates the only Holocaust museum in Canada and is a leader in Holocaust education and remembrance.
Our Museum is located at 5151 Côte-Sainte-Catherine Rd, Montreal H3W 1M6 and is open daily, except Saturdays. To plan a visit: www.mhmc.ca
