Dig­i­tiz­ing his­tory

Lebanon Traveler - - CONTENT -

Beirut’s Na­tional Mu­seum gets a dig­i­tal up­grade to its his­tor­i­cal col­lec­tion with the launch of a new free smart­phone app which dou­bles as an au­dio guide to the mu­seum, avail­able in Ara­bic, French and English. The move is a step to­wards mod­ern­iza­tion that will no doubt make the coun­try’s her­itage more ac­ces­si­ble to a tech-savvy gen­er­a­tion. The project was made pos­si­ble with the do­na­tion of An­toine and Samia Meguerdiche who wanted the mem­ory of their son Basil to have a place in his­tory. Now vis­i­tors can down­load the app and ex­plore the mu­seum’s trea­sures through their smart­phone, tablet or one of the in-house ipads. Down­load the app “Beirut Mu­seum” on Ap­ple Store (IOS) or “Na­tional Mu­seum of Beirut” on Play Store (An­droid)
