Museums and exhibition centres of Turkmenistan are actively introducing digital technologies into the space of their expositions.
Today, the country's museum complexes have their own Internet sites, where, in addition to museum sections, virtual 3D tours of various collections are presented. Thanks to technological progress, such tours allow you to take a virtual walk through the halls of museums from anywhere in the world.
On the official website of the State Museum of the State Cultural Center of Turkmenistan, users can get acquainted with the history of the formation and development of museums in our country. It also presents current information events, notices of ongoing exhibitions and scientific publications.
By going to the virtual tour section, site visitors can take an online tour through the halls of the museum and use 360° video technology to view individual exhibits in detail, as well as get additional information about them.
The Museum of Fine Arts of Turkmenistan invites you to get acquainted with the rich collection of fine and decorative arts. The video materials presented on the museum's official website tell in detail about the expositions, which include the best works of the first Turkmen artists, as well as Russian, Western European and Oriental artists.
Currently, work is underway on a single electronic database of historical, artistic and other cultural values stored in museums. Effective steps are being taken to create and implement virtual 3D tours for each museum in Turkmenistan.
As noted during the scientific-practical conference «Methodology for the implementation of a digital system and the potential of a virtual museum», held last spring, the introduction of innovative technologies in the museums of the country will contribute to the study, protection and promotion of our cultural heritage, history, culture of the present and past of the Turkmen people.
