3D-туры по музеям Украины

Virtual Museum (website museum) is a type of website optimized for exhibiting museum materials. The materials presented can be from a variety of fields: from art objects and historical artifacts to virtual collections and family relics. Due to the use of Internet technologies, virtual museums offer a solution to such traditional museum problems as storage, security, providing wide, quick and easy access to exhibits.

Unlike simple photo collections, a virtual museum is characterized by features such as availability and advanced search capabilities to locate and classify exhibits.

The first began to appear on the Internet in 1991. Virtual museums were initially sites of real museums, but personal website museums soon began to appear. The logic is simple: if a house can become a house-museum, then the home page can become a museum page. In the same year, an online Louvre was opened by a French student, Nicolas Poche, and CERN was immediately recognized as the “site 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, digitized seven open-air museums in various regions of the country and created a virtual tour with them. This is stated in the blog of the company.

On the special site " Open Air Museums of Ukraine " you can take a virtual trip, learn about the history of life in various regions, as well as get acquainted with folk architecture and life.

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