On many computers and smart phones, simply clicking on the MP3 file allows you to listen to the audio immediately, using streaming audio. Here's how to download the file and save it to your computer allowing you to listen to the audio on other devices and at other times; you can transfer downloaded audio files to a portable audio player or smart phone, or burn a CD. You may want to bring earphones or headphones along with your portable audio device on your museum visit.

Windows PC Users: Right-click the MP3 link and select "Save Target As..." or "Save Link As..." or "Download Link..." to save to your hard drive. Double-clicking the downloaded file will usually open it and begin playback.

Mac Users: Hold down the "Control" key and click the MP3 link, then select "Save Link As..." or "Download Linked File..." to save to your hard drive. Double-clicking the downloaded file will usually begin playback and add the track to your iTunes library.
