There was a workshop on this topic a couple of years ago:

Workshop on the Integration of Location Based Systems in Tourism and
Cultural Heritage

Hi Markus,

I've not been able to try this mobile cultural service myself, but I've
been impressed with the web technologies that this same group have
developed:

<http://www.eternalegypt.org/EternalEgyptWebsiteWeb/HomeServlet?ee_website_action_key=action.display.about&language_id=1&link_key=4>

There's also an EU-funded augmented reality project called
ARCHEOGUIDE--which is an authoring tool for creating the kind of project
you're describing.  I don't know who (if anyone) has adopted it, but
heard a buzz about it at a conference.

This recent paper looks like it might be relevant:
