Acropolis Museum Ready to Go Digital After EU Funding

Thanks to EU funding from the NSRF 2014-2020 program, the Acropolis Museum will soon be setting a 1.7-million-euro digital project into action, Attica Regional authorities said in a statement this week.

Aiming to enhance the Acropolis Museum experience, the digital project will include the creation of an interactive website featuring information about the museum and how to arrange a visit; a presentation of the museum’s collection consisting of 10,000 items; a virtual museum where visitors can plan their tour according to their interests, create a “personal collection” of favorite exhibits, or interact via multimedia apps; as well as a virtual Children’s Club complete with interactive educational games.

Besides the availability of 24 digital apps in Greek and English, the project will also include the development of a management and back-office application with training capabilities for the staff.

The museum, voted 8th among the top museums in the world in the 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards for Museums released by TripAdvisor already operates a digital classroom – the first of its kind in Greece and the fifth in Europe – complete with the latest in learning technology.
