The paper describes a nomadic information system under development by GMD in the HIPS1 project that supports nomadic activities adapted to the individual visitor of a museum. The world-wide Web, wired and wireless connectivity to networks, and small mobile devices allow for supporting nomadic activities by information and communication technology to an extensive degree. Mobile information technology is a chance to support the process of activities from the beginning to the end, distributed over time, across space and between actors.

The paper describes a nomadic information system designed to support adaptive information and adaptive learning of visitors during art excursions. An information system is said to be nomadic when the user has access to his or her personal information space from all places independent from specific devices. The art domain is attractive for a nomadic information system because art excursions require nomadic activities from visitors and art can best be enjoyed when the recipient has access to information about an art object when he or she is in front of the art object. In front of an art object the motivation to learn more about the object can be assumed to be higher than without the authentic impression of an art exhibition. We want to use the effect of situated learning known in task contexts in order to support situated learning in an interest context.
