Cyber Museum

The term “Cyber Museum”, is often confused with [Virtual Museum]. the traditional definition describes a Cyber Museum as “a logically related collection of digital objects composed in a variety of media which, through its connectivity and its multi-accessible nature, lends itself to transcending traditional methods of communicating and interacting with visitors.; it has no real place or space; its objects and the related information can be disseminated all over the world”. This definition probably derived from the newly-born examples of “Virtual” applications and it appears somehow misinterpreting. Likely according to McKenzie, in these museums, it is expressed the synergistic effect of classical and online museum with a slight tilt toward the domination of the classical museum.
