Saga of the Dynasty
Since 2013 the Russian Museum has been carrying out a long-term project of creating in St. Michael’s Castle a museum of a new kind which will be devoted to the history of the dynasty of the Romanovs.
The traditional exhibiting of collections in fine arts museums is undergoing significant changes, connected primarily with the use of modern electronic technology at expositions.
In 2013 the new website for mobile devices “The Russian Museum. The Augmented Reality” - rmgallery.ru was launched. The principle used in the mobile website is that of scanning a QR code at the exposition and immediately getting additional information. The mobile website, developed in Russian and English, is available to users of all mobile devices that have access to the Internet.
Further information on the Augmented Reality technology and history of the project is in this section.
