Abstract: Abstract This paper presents a novel minimax hybrid recommender for free-roaming museum visits that is based on a new museum visit concept that was developed to capture the spatial, temporal and content-based dynamics during free-roaming museum visits. The complex hybrid recommender applies a minimax approach as it estimates an overall visitor dissatisfaction and aims its minimisation. As a result, it is able to develop optimal routes, as sequences of points of interest for each individual visitor. This hybrid recommender, still at its fine-tuning phase, has been tested in large scale simulations, using realistic data for visitors and exhibitions and has already shown to outperform the naive baseline recommender that relies on popularity.
