From A. Malraux’s Musée Imaginaire to the Museum of Virtual Reality

New Museology tries to attract the interest of a broader public in museums. The dissemination of technology and computer science has changed considerably the way of thinking and working in museums. The high quality of digital photography has introduced virtual reality in the museum activities and the use of CD-ROMs or Web sites have become an everyday practice in them. As a result, the automatism and speed in research contribute considerably to the communication with and the information of a broader public. The conditions concerning the way of thinking and working of archaeologists-museologists change rapidly, therefore they must adjust themselves to the new reality in order to provide the necessary museum education framework for non-specialists.
