Hanoi (VNA) – The National History Museum has set up several new virtual shows to attract visitors amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The museum applied digital technology in the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage for many years, said Dr Nguyen Van Doan – director of the National History Museum. The aim is to build a digital database for Vietnamese cultural heritage (E-Heritage) and it has achieved many positive results.
One of the latest shows is an interactive 3D virtual exhibition of national treasures that the museum has developed in collaboration with Vietsotfpro Company since 2020.
Additionally, the National History Museum Volunteer Club researched and constructed an online museum tour to meet the needs of visitors during the period of social distancing.
The online tour, held on September 12, was a combination of storytelling and various digital technologies that help bring new perspectives and experiences. It attracted nearly 100 participants.
In particular, the Museum’s History Classroom program and the History Lover’s Club are gradually being transformed into an online form, via the Zoom application. So far, the museum has organized hundreds of free history lessons for more than 5,000 students, including Vietnamthese children living abroad.
Based on the experience and success of the above programs, museum director Dr Nguyen Van Doan affirmed that in the future the museum will continue to design more shows using digital technology to meet to increasing public demand./.
