The multimedia exhibition “Salvation of the Hermitage Treasures” has recently opened in the Orbeli Brothers House-Museum in Tsakhkadzor.
As reported by “Armenpress”, the director of the house-museum Marine Buniatyan notes that the new format will increase the number of visitors, especially when Tsakhkadzor is one of the tourist centers in the republic and the only cultural center of the city is the Orbeli brothers’ house-museum. It was founded in 1980 and has about eight thousand visitors a year.
According to him, the visitors of the house-museum can already get acquainted with the episode that is considered as a turning point for the Hermitage’s biography with the help of new technologies, can learn how the Hermitage’s treasures were prevented from being sold thanks to Hovsep Orbeli’s letter to Stalin.
Thanks to the use of multimedia technologies, the implementation of the unique program “Salvation of the Hermitage Treasures” makes the museum exhibition more attractive, presenting the heroic deed of Hovsep Orbeli in an interesting way.
Academician Hovsep Orbeli conducted excavations in the capital Ani, Van and Amberd. As a result of the excavations, a lot of archeological materials were taken out of Ani, a clown skeleton from Amberd, and the cuneiforms of Sarduri 2 from Van.
The idea of the game is that the child can choose the place for excavations and the necessary tools on the touch screen.
