3D-туры по музеям Украины

Virtual museum (website-museum) is a type of website optimized for the exposition of museum materials. Presented materials can be from a variety of areas: from art objects and historical artifacts to virtual collections and family relics. Virtual museums through the use of Internet technologies offer a solution to such traditional museum problems as storage, security, providing wide, fast and easy access to exhibits.

Unlike simple photo collections, the 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. First, virtual museums were sites of real museums, but soon began to appear and personal website-museums. 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 Pioche opened the "online Louvre", and immediately marked CERN as "site of the year" in the category "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 by them. This is stated in the company's blog.

On a special site " Museums of Ukraine under the open sky " you can make a virtual trip, learn about the history of life in different regions, as well as get acquainted with the people's architecture and way of life.

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