Web 2.0 enables increased access to the museum digital collection. More and more, users will spend time preparing their visits to the museums and reflecting on them after the visits. In this context, the CHIP (Cultural Heritage Information Personalization) project offers tools to the users to be their own curator, e.g. planning a personalized museum tour, discovering interesting artworks they want to see in a 'virtual' or a 'real' tour and quickly finding their ways in the museum. In this paper we present the new additions to the CHIP tools, which target the above functionality - a Web-based Tour Preparation Wizard and an export of a personalized tour to an interactive Mobile Guide used in the physical museum space. In addition, the user interactions during a real museum visit are stored and synchronized with the user model, which is maintained at the museum Web site.
