Best use of QR codes I've found... in museums. Being interested in anything man-made that rolls, moves or flies I get to a fair number of transport museums. The small panels in front of many exhibits are now being embellished with QR codes that give you more information than will fit on a panel (or that the casual visitor would be prepared to read) plus videos, sound files, etc. Want to know what that Merlin engine in front of you sounds like at full chat? Scan the QR code. Want to see how a Waveney class lifeboat behaves in heavy seas? Scan the..., well you get the picture.

Really helps enhance the experience, IMHO.
