What are the expected benefits?

Once completed, the Museum will be digitally accessible: To the young public, since the Museum would speak their “digital language”, thus investing in its future public, to tourists, Greeks and foreigners, who will be able to visit the Museum’s premises and attend its events through its digital applications. The general public will have the opportunity to get to know the PPM online, search and browse the digital repository and view the digital objects and collections held by the Museum, Specific audiences, such as the academic and educational community, will be provided with material for studying and researching a Greek institution, Children will now have specially designed digital applications that will involve them in the P.P.M.’s activities and familiarise them with the types of art it represents, Disabled people, as all web applications will be at least “AA” (WCAG 2.0, level A.A.) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0, and to its existing audience, whose interest will be renewed with new material and applications.
