Virtual Museums and Public Understanding of Science and Culture

"This Web page offers a retrospective of a symposium held in May 2002 by The Nobel Foundation. "The purpose of the symposium was to explore how scientific and cultural institutions can use Internet and the new information technology to promote public understanding of science and culture." A brief recap of the event and a transcript of the panel discussion are provided online. Additionally, nearly twenty presentations and articles from keynote speakers can be downloaded. The presentations addressed many different topics, including basic justification for virtual museums, discipline-specific online exhibit design, and interactive virtual laboratories.
