National Gallery Goes Interactive

The National Gallery, London, unveiled a new interactive display service. The gallery hopes it will help shed light on its 2,300-strong collection. Interactive displays have been a part of museum and galleries for about two decades but have rarely been successful at augmenting the whole visiting experience. The National Gallery hopes it can change all that with its new service ArtStart. With up to 36 kiosks are planned throughout the gallery, visitors can search and view the entire 2,300-strong collection with a complementary text on each art work. Users can plot a unique gallery tour, focusing on artists of their own choice. For the full story - click the title Irish Art
