Exhibition designers

In 2014, Lithuanian Museums’ Centre for Information and Digitisation and LIMIS a department of the Lithuanian Art Museum designed and published 20 virtual exhibitions from LAM and other museums’ collections. Other museums already have the opportunity to design virtual exhibitions. For participation, they receive a unique code, log in to the system and use virtual exhibitions’ designing instructions.

Content of the exhibitions

In the website users can access information about the most valuable and interesting exhibits collected and preserved in the museums. Digital content of the virtual exhibition should consist of one museum’s exhibits as well as several museums’ exhibits. Virtual exhibitions could be designed from the unique objects of cultural heritage stored in the private collections and institutions, also from active exhibitions in other countries which signed cooperation treaties with Lithuanian museums and together implement digitization and dissemination projects of cultural heritage.
