05/04/2012

The Acropolis Museum, in collaboration with Google, aims to facilitate access to its permanent collections by offering a digital platform for personalized viewing and navigation of information for discussion and educational purposes. Through the Google Art Project, the Acropolis Museum is showcased through high-definition images of selected exhibits as well as virtual tours of its permanent collections.

The Museum selected block VI of the east frieze of the Parthenon to be photographed in extraordinary detail using super high resolution or “Gigapixel” photo capturing technology, enabling the viewer to study details of the exhibit beyond that possible with the naked eye.
