    Teenagers have been identified as an audience group that is often excluded from museum curatorial strategies. One strategy to counteract this problem is to involve cultural heritage professionals (CHPs) in the design process of museum based digital experiences targeted at teens. In this paper, 12 CHPs from a local natural history museum took part in a co-design activity over 20 hours, aiming to create and deploy digital tours for teenagers aged between 16-19. We present the three prototypes that derived from these design sessions. These were then tested by both 12 CHPs and 12 teenagers separately, and we report on lessons learned from the evaluation of these prototypes by both groups.
