The Thyssen brings his art to the youngest through a video game

Madrid, Dec 14 (EFE) .- A social simulation video game to bring their art closer to the youngest. That is the latest initiative of the Thyssen Museum, which is introduced in the new installment of the popular “Animal Crossing”, a video game that allows players to create their own art collection on a desert island.

The Thyssen in Animal Crossing is an educational initiative that uses the Nintendo video game to “build digital experiences from art,” says a statement from the museum.

The aim of the game is to create a new virtual museum from which to bring the Thyssen collections to players from all over the world.

The user can form their own community on a desert island and customize it as they please. To do this, you can download and save, using QR codes, works by artists such as Caravaggio, Carpaccio, Murillo, Holbein, Rubens, Goya, Manet, Degas or Cézanne.

The works can be incorporated into its islands and numerous videos will help to better understand the museum, its artists and their paintings. Players can share their favorite paintings with the museum via Twitter at @EducaThyssen.
