Virtual Tours of Museums

Virtual museums started in the 90s. Also called online, electronic, digital and web museums, they were initially very technically simple. Eventually, with the support of growing user interest, they evolved into the impressive and educational draws so many of them are today.
One of the first virtual museums is  the Web Museum, Paris , created by Nicolas Pioch. Based on today’s standard’s Pioch’s virtual museum tour looks quite primitive in both its form and content. But its two main features do offer some visuals that might be interesting to the user. The first, is a biography of Paul Cezanne, including visuals of his works. The other notable feature on the site is that it allows you to see the major parts of Paris by taking either a virtual walking or historical tour.
You should definitely visit the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford , vvhere you will discover a sectioh dedicated to online exhibits. Here you can virtually view a selection of exhibitions at the museum. The site tells you, for example, that there is an exhibition on time rhachines that will last through April 15. lt also gives you background information via video on available exhibits such as the lecture explaining the time machine exhibit delivered by Pedro Ferreira, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Oxford. A sample of current exhibitions includes the following: Eccentricity; Compass and Rule; Astrolabes of Africa, East and West; Science in ls- lam; Wireless World; Titan; The Most Noble Problem in Nature; Cosmography.
We have mentioned the sphere of science and therefore we cannot neglect the London Science Museum . About 3 million people visit it every year. And while not a virtual museum per say, it has a great deal of background on its exhibitions via video, games you can play, and tools on its site directed toward youth education. The Science Museum

was founded in 1857 as part of the South Kensington Museum, and gained independence in 1909. It also has an online shop, by means of which you can buy modern inventions.
WebExhibitsis a virtual museum covering the spheres of science and culture with exhibits on everything from the causes of color to the history of butter. It is up to the visitor how to use the site. For example, a visitor can choose one of several pigments in which to view a world famous work of art. This playful element is part of the site’s dedication to making education interesting and fun. The user can make a theme more vivid, cheerful and interesting. Most important is that the user will have the opportunity to see which particular pigment was used in a particular period. For example, what pigment was popular in the middle ages is a question answered by this educational‘ tool – especially interesting for those involved in art and art history. On the site you can also see the works of Giovanni Bellini, get comprehensive information about classical and new poetic forms, and get acquainted with the letters with sketches by Vincent van Gogh. The museum also has an online shop, where you can buy copies of works from many of the exhibits.
Let me also briefly mention Google’s initiative, the Google Art Project . You can v iew most interesting exhibits in details, so enjoy the opportunity to view some of the world’s most famous works.
