Now in 3-D
This post is from our web and technology-savvy colleague Allison.
The Museum’s Online Collection just got a bit more interesting with the inclusion of 3D artifacts and page flipping books. Museum staff chose some of our most visually interesting and powerful artifacts to display as 3D objects. Now you can spin and zoom into this double-decker Hanukkah menorah used by two families during World War I or flip through a chilling children’s book designed to teach anti-Semitism. Discover these and other 3D artifacts and books here. Other improvements to the website include the ability to see if an artifact is on display in the museum, better searching capability, and the option to share interesting artifacts on Facebook, Twitter, or on another social media platform.
