The best example for this can be virtual museums that serve as an excellent tool for not only

preserving the cultural heritage and providing a variety of ways of sharing the wonders of art into the internet with the help of technology. 

What are virtual online museums, and why do we need ones?

Museums play a role of an invaluable assistant in the process of bringing up the young generation, making them aware of the humanitarian values and sense of self-worth; they also motivate students to value lives of others as high as their own, they teach to differentiate right from wrong, and sound from vice.

An online museum is a place that tells about ancient, modern arts and recent history; At the same time, it can be the source of education and training due to its live, natural and visual materials, which in their turn operate as illustrative for grounding a real character in the future. 

This is the most effective way to access various types of information online. Also, it allows monitoring information on multiple platforms.

Another advantage of virtual museums is the fact that all the exhibits are displayed in virtual panorama mode. At the same time, it is possible to see shows at 360 angles in a technology-driven online art gallery.

The next way of obtaining information in virtual museums is virtual travel. Virtual travel in a web art gallery consists of animated objects, multimedia displays and audible information.
