When we are unable to visit the museum, the museum visits us!

But, how? Pretty easily 👉😎

On Monday, 15 April at 11:00, patients, caregivers, physicians, nurses and volunteers were “transported” to the Museum of the City of Athens – Vouros – Eutaxias Foundation to get a virtual tour of its space and visit its permanent exhibition.

The “Virtual Museum” project is part of the Museum’s corporate and social policy and in collaboration with PAMEMMAZI, was held at the General Oncology Hospital of Kifissia “Oi Aghioi Anargyroi” to offer to those who are not able to visit the Museum due to their stay in the hospital, a unique cultural experience without social limitations.

All interested parties – patients, caregivers and hospital staff – “visited” the Museum and its collections, got a tour of its space and saw works of art and exhibits from its permanent exhibition through a specially designed virtual reality tour via virtual reality glasses.

The virtual tour was followed by an interactive presentation titled “Fashion and Art” facilitated by Art Historian Evaggelia Naka.

*This event is part of the “Virtual Museum” project carried out by the Museum of the City of Athens and supported by the Vodafone Foundation, Leriva and iStaging.
