The number of virtual visits during the 10 days of live broadcast of the Norouz (Iranian New Year) tour of museums reached 15,000, the head of the Post and Communications Museum of Iran said.
Hassan Amidi added that the highest number was for the National Museum of Iran and the virtual tour of Niavaran Cultural Center, according to ISNA.
He added that the virtual tour of 10 museums during the Norouz holidays was held under the slogan of “Museum is not closed”, which was highly welcomed by those interested in the field of museum tours.
After the outbreak of the coronavirus in Iran, the Post and Communications Museum, in April 2020, for the first time held a virtual museum tour or streaming of museum activities on the video sharing service of Aparat and Instagram, Amidi noted.
