3D-туры по музеям Украины

Virtual museum (museum website) is a type of website optimized for displaying museum materials. The presented materials can be from various areas: from objects of art and historical artifacts to virtual collections and family relics. Virtual museums through the use of Internet technologies offer solutions to such traditional museum problems as storage, security, ensuring wide, fast and easy access to exhibits.

Unlike simple collections of photographs, a virtual museum is characterized by such features as the availability and advanced search capabilities for finding and classifying exhibits.

The first began to appear on the Internet in 1991. At first, virtual museums were sites of real museums, but personal websites-museums soon began to appear. The logic is simple: if a house can become a house-museum, then the home page can become a page-museum. In the same year, the French student Nicolas Pyoche opened the “online Louvre” and was immediately marked by CERN as the “website of the year” in the nomination “For the best use of multimedia”. Subsequently, at the request of the leadership of the Louvre, the name of the site was changed.

Google, together with the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine, has digitized seven open-air museums in various regions of the country and created a virtual tour with them. This is stated in the company's blog.

On the special website " Museums of Ukraine under the open sky " you can make a virtual journey, learn about the history of life in various regions, as well as get acquainted with the folk architecture and way of life.

3D museum tours are also available in Street View on Google Maps.
