What is your favorite, can't miss museum, botanical garden, aquarium, zoo or other attraction that is using cool visitor experience technology? Bonus points if they're in Washington, D.C., New York City, San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles or Seattle.

I've read this question
, but want more than just an iOS/Android app.
I am trying to put together a list of must see/use or investigate visitor experience technologies in various attractions in the US. Preferably in the cities above as those are ones we are already traveling to or live in. Some places already on the list include MOMA, American Museum of Natural History (we're already partnered with their app maker), and OMSI in Portland (local for us).
Some examples of the technology we're wanting to look at on-site include: interactive web, cell phone tours, iPhone/iPad and Android apps, QR codes, GPS/Wifi locative information, SMS based info, etc. Low tech works if it is really inventive. Please also feel free to include if you purchased your ticket or membership in what you thought was a particularly cool way.
In essence, we want to know what cool technology you have used in a museum, etc. We're aware of most of the major vendors in the field but are looking for solutions in the wild that people really enjoyed.
