The present generation is inclined towards use of immersive technologies in Museums. Ministry of Culture operates the Museum Grant Scheme (MGS) which is for the development of new museums/up gradation of existing museums.
While approving the projects, the Expert Committee encourages the applicants to use technology in setting up of new museums and upgradation of existing one.
Ministry of Culture has set up a web based virtual museum at Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad, to tell the story of the liberation movement of Hyderabad Samsthan & other immersive experiences in National Museum.
Across the world a number of immersive experiences are being developed within the museum sector over the years.
Holograms are an innovation in the sector. The hologram statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was unveiled much before the physical statue was installed at Amar Jawan Jyoti, India Gate in New Delhi.
New Delhi’s Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya is a perfect blend of history, art and technology.
