ABSTRACT
Historical monuments, whether in the form of immovable objects or movable antiquities, are part of our lives, they represent our history and should be also maintained for future generations. That can be done as an appropriate care about them or as a documentation of their current state. Nowadays, in the world full of information and digital technologies, there is a wide range of possibilities to document these historical monuments and to convert them into a digital form, in which they can be preserved “intact” for a very long time. Laser scanning and digital photogrammetry can be included among the two most frequently used technology, but photogrammetry is more suitable in terms of financial costs. The objective of this paper is to present the use of this method for the documentation of one of the most costly exhibit of the Slovak Technical Museum in Košice, the bronze door from 1580 decorated with motives and reliefs from Dionys celebrations, and to highlight advantages, disadvantages and limitations of this method.
