The Russian Museum has become the first museum in Russia to start using the technology of the Augmented Reality in work with visitors. The presentation of the project “The Russian Museum. The Augmented Reality” took place in the Russian Museum on the 16th December of 2011 in the framework of the round table “Museum 2.0: digital technology in art”.
The mobile application for Android and iOs platforms was developed with the support of Mobile TeleSystems PJSC. At the exhibition 100 QR codes were placed near the most famous works of art and a booklet “Grigory Chernetsov. Parade on Tsaritsa Meadow” was prepared and published. The booklet is devoted to the unique painting of the early 19th century representing more than 200 characters which were contemporaries of the poet Alexander Pushkin.
