The Ministry of Culture and Tourism announced on its website on Wednesday that it will install three-dimensional visual systems in museums in Turkey to make them more attractive to visitors.

By installing 3D visual effect technology, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism aims to attract more visitors to museums. The first museum that will see this technology installed will be the Zeugma Museum in Gaziantep province, which contains an internationally renowned Turkish mosaic depicting a gypsy girl titled “Çingene Kızı” (Gypsy Girl) that is frequently used in promotional films about Turkey.

Through this new project, museum visitors will be able to see artworks three-dimensionally with the help of 3D simulator glasses. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism has started a bidding process for companies to produce 3D simulator glasses that will be given to visitors to view the artworks in 3D.

After the Zeugma Museum, the ministry plans to install the same 3D technology in two other museums, the Hacıbektaş Külliye (complex) and Archeology Museum and the famous Galata Mevlevihane (dervish lodge) in İstanbul’s Beyoğlu district.
