Greek museums reinvented their contact with the public during the pandemic

Greek museums reinvented their contact with the public during the pandemicThe National Archaeological Museum of Athens is going full-force into the digital age with an ambitious project using EU funds allocated to Greece

Greek museums, forced to shut their gates to the public in November, used lockdown time to find alternative ways to keep in touch with the public, carry out needed maintenance work, and expand the objects on show for the day actual visits are allowed, according to ANA.

Among them, the National Archaeological Museum of Athens is going full-force into the digital age with an ambitious project using EU funds allocated to Greece, the Byzantine and Christian Museum is setting up an annex in a historic mansion of central Athens, the Piraeus Bank Group museums are throwing their weight behind podcasts of their specialized and dispersed museums that also cater to people with hearing and vision disabilities, and the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus is enthusiastically setting up a cinema division, with documentaries on antiquities that include two cartoon films.
