Only in the Acropolis Museum

There is only one fitting place for the Parthenon Marbles presently in the British Museum to be reunified, is the Acropolis Museum. Only here can their peerless beauty, the genius of their creation, their dynamic relationship with place, history, and culture, be fully realised.

Remind the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the Greek War of Independence began in 1821. Now, 200yrs on it’s time to return the Parthenon Marbles to a fitting place as a mark of respect for the Hellenic Republic, particularly at a time when the UK must build & strengthen bilateral relationships.

There is no other suitable place for these peerless creations.

Supporting the British Museum

Reunifying the Parthenon Marbles is a cultural imperative. Greece has already extended an offer to support the British Museum with other antiquities that will be of equivalent interest to those who visit the British Museum.

This can be of mutual benefit to both Museums.

Advances in digital technology particularly in Augmented Reality (AR) also open up numerous options for the British Museum to enrich its presentation of the Parthenon Marbles without holding onto creations that belong in Athens.

Pioneering AR

The use of AR is already well established in the National Gallery of Singapore.

The Benaki Museum is planning a major AR initiative to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Greek War of Independence in 2021

Numerous Possibilities with AR

The possibilities for museology employing AR are numerous.  Here is another example.
