Museums in virtual reality
MuIS is a museum information system – a web-based work environment to manage museum collections and keep track of state assets. It also helps make the information kept in the museums accessible to the public. 56 museums have joined MuIS and as of the beginning of 2014 the database includes information on more than 2.5 million items and 653,000 digital images.
The virtual exhibition system offers museums a safe and easily handled environment to present collections or exhibitions, while providing history enthusiasts with improved access to the images and recordings kept in museums. The system was a cooperation project of the Ministry of Culture, MindBridge OÜ and restoration company Kanut.
In carrying out culture policy, the Ministry of Culture cooperates closely with MTÜ Eesti Muuseumiühing and the Museum Council.
