Are you hosting your destination wedding in a big city? Then this gift to your guests is perfect to not only help them see the local sites, but keep their kids entertained along the way. Mind Gamez recently introduced a mobile app called History Hero to help bridge the gap between travel and education. With technology at their fingertips, it might be difficult to keep kids interested and engaged at that museum your guests just paid to get into.

The app has a customized “mission” for some of the biggest museums and historical sites across the World. This interactive video game teaches history to children and teenagers as they follow along with a tour. Developed with some of the top teachers in the U.S., History Hero is meant to complement the traditional guidebooks and audio tours.

The game is available in three different age groups: ages four to seven, ages eight to 12 and ages 13 and above. Wondering if this app is available at your chosen destination wedding location? See below for a list of destinations and museums/sites which cater to the History Hero kid.
