"National Museum has already digitised approximately 15,759 antiquities in 2D format and now with the new vision of the Ministry of Culture, a 3D digitisation pilot project has been initiated to take it to another level," an official release said here.
The project has been taken up with a team of researchers and photographers from Deccan College, Pune. At present, 3D photography work is going on in three departments -- Archaeology, Decorative Arts and Central Asian Antiquities -- at the museum here, the release said.

Till December 31, last year, around 50 objects in 3D anaglyph were readily available, it said."These 3D images will give a rich experience to the public/viewers who would witness these images with high sense of virtual viewing of the object, including its every detail in a credible manner," it said.
Such a project has been taken up in India for the first time by National Museum, it added.
