From January to March 2020, the Museum also offered virtual reality tours to non-profit nursing homes in Attica. A virtual reality app invited the elderly to “live” the experience of a museum visit, to navigate through the Cycladic Art Collection and “travel” for a while to the Cyclades, bringing them in contact with the sea and the islands. Virtual reality tours were designed with the support of e-food. The purpose of the program was to focus on a social group that is in great need of entertainment and socialization.
Furthermore, the Museum of Cycladic Art is one of the first museums in Greece that have carried out specific staff training by gerontologists to adequately meet the needs of people over 65 years.
