NBH FUNDS GIANT INTERACTIVE LCD DISPLAY FOR MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS

 

Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts unveiled a 15-metre-wide, interactive LCD display purchased with 150 million forints (EUR 471,500) in funding from the National Bank of Hungary (NBH). Visitors to the museum can see pieces from the collection on the screen that are otherwise difficult to view, said NBH deputy-governor Ferenc Gerhardt. Some 300 paintings, sculptures and other works of art are being showcased on the LCD display, said museum director László Baán. Baán said more than 100,000 people had visited the museum since it reopened on October 31, following a 15 billion forint three-year renovation.
