This paper focuses on the first stage of the City project that concerns the design of a mixed reality system that may support co-visiting for local and remote museum visitors. We discuss the initial visitor studies, the prototype system and the user trials, with a focus on the role direct interaction and peripheral awareness have in the shaping of the visitor experience. The paper concludes with reflections on the use of the system and future plans.
