    This paper presents solutions for both museum exhibitions and mobile guides using multimodal mixed reality interfaces based on open standards that can be highly customisable and intuitive to attract and engage a broad spectrum of users. For indoor exhibitions, some of the most characteristic technologies will be presented to demonstrate how multi-modal presentations and interactions of three-dimensional heritage environments can provide enhanced support in practice. For mobile personalised applications like on-site visits, a highly customisable mobile framework illustrates how personalized visits to open-air heritage sites can be performed. The multimodal mixed reality interfaces take into account the diverse needs of visitors to heritage and mobile guide exhibitions allowing for multimedia representations of the same content but using diverse interfaces including a web, a map, a virtual reality and an augmented reality domain. Different case-studies demonstrate the capabilities of the multimodal mixed reality interfaces when applied to museum and open-air environments as well as how personalisation and customisation can be performed to meet a wide range of user needs.
