It looks like Plato will be stepping into the 21st century with a digital museum at Plato's Academy in Athens, Greece. Financed by multiple groups through Europe, the new digital museum is already looking to be an eye-opening educational experience for fans of philosophy and lifelong learners.

A digital museum will be created at the site of Plato’s Academy in an Athens neighborhood. The project was approved on April 11 by the Central Archaeological Council. It will be housed temporarily in a prefabricated building.

The project is being implemented under the title Academy of Plato: The City and the Citizen, put together by the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, in cooperation with Foundation of the Hellenic World (FHW), Onassis Cultural Center of the Onassis Foundation and the Foundation for Youth and Lifelong Learning. The project is co-financed from National and European Funds through the operational program Education and Lifelong Learning.
