We stand on their shoulders. Their legacy is inspirational, their hardships are instructional, and we can prosper as we learn the lessons of the past.

We have multiple methods of preserving the past, from supporting local efforts to nation-wide database initiatives. You can be a part of it!

about Tourburst

Tourburst is more than an app. Here at tourburst, the app facilitates a new level of cooperation and collaboration between like-minded organizations not previously possible. It enables cities in different states to work together and pool their resources, it allows businesses to connect with customers in a new way, and it gives historical societies an entirely new venue to preserve and present history. Some of the best features in tourburst presents history in a whole new way. Now users can see the entire history of a local area through a historical timeline. Using augmented reality, virtual reality, and even old photographs, users can see multiple time periods for the same location… including the buildings and other artifacts. We call this feature Walking Into History (W.I.T.H.) and is available in version 5. At tourburst, we want all organizations associated with the cultural and historical heritage of the area to have more tools to preserve history, present it to tourists, and have more income so they can continue their important work. Yes, tourburst does all of that! Contact us today if you would like more information or to become a partner or franchise operator.
