Hanoi (VNA) - The National Museum of History has introduced several new virtual shows to attract visitors in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The museum has applied digital technology in preserving and promoting cultural heritage for many years, said Dr. Nguyen Van Doan - Director of the National Museum of History. The purpose is to build a digital database  for Vietnamese cultural heritage (E-Heritage) and it has obtained many positive results.

One of the latest shows is a 3D virtual interactive display of national treasures which the museum developed in collaboration with Vietsotfpro Company since 2020.

In addition, the National Museum of History Volunteer Club has researched and built an online tour of the museum to meet the needs of visitors during the time of social distancing.

The online tour, held on September 12, was a combination of narration with various digital technologies which help bring new perspectives and experiences. It attracted nearly 100 participants. 

In particular, the museum's History Classroom programme and the History Lover's Club are being gradually converted to an online form, via the Zoom application. Up to now, the museum has organized hundreds of free history classes for more than 5,000 students, including Vietnamese children living abroad.

Based on the experience and success of the above programmes, the museum's director Dr. Nguyen Van Doan affirmed that in the coming time, the museum will continue to design more shows using digital technology to meet the growing demand of the public./.
