We visited Chateau Chenonceau a few days before the official iPod April 3 iPod launch and used the iPod for our tour.  We didn’t know at the time it was so new.  It’s a great idea for audio tours.

Very cool - but seems very expensive, although I don’t know what the standard audio tour system costs.

I wonder if they got some kind of co-marketing deal with Apple.

The Museum of Sex in NYC has a great audio tour (seriously, it does), and the iPod would be a sexy way to listen!
