An app to automatically construct a rich timeline of a museum visit

There are apps (like Moves) which automatically construct a timeline of your day—where you went, how long you spent there, what path you took. It would be neat to have something similar after a museum visit. That would free you to focus on the physical artworks during the visit. But afterwards an automatically constructed timeline would recall what you saw, highlighting what you spent most time looking at, and what path you took through the museum floor plan. The timeline should include photos of each artwork, a hypertexted museum label, how long you spent looking at it. The app should make it easy to share an artwork with friends and to delve deeper into a work which interested you, or to reread a detail from a museum label you forgot or didn’t quite grok at the time. Perhaps one could even send a curator a follow-up question!
