The vast amounts of information presented in museums can be overwhelming to a visitor, whose receptivity and time are typically limited. Hence, s/he might have difficulties selecting interesting exhibits to view within the available time. Mobile, context-aware guides offer the opportunity to improve a visitor’s experience by recommending exhibits of interest, and personalising the delivered content. The first step in this recommendation process is the accurate prediction of a visitor’s activities and preferences. In this paper, we present two adaptive collaborative models for predicting a visitor’s next locations in a museum, and an ensemble model that combines their predictions. Our experimental results from a study using a small dataset of museum visits are encouraging, with the ensemble model yielding the best performance overall.
