User-friendly, the CD allows a virtual tour throughout the permanent exhibitions of the four museums of the "Moldova" National Museum Complex, which are the following: the Art Museum, with two main sections: World Art Gallery and Romanian Art Gallery; the Ethnographic Museum of Moldavia, with interesting sections such as: Agriculture, Secondary Occupations (Bee-keeping, Hunting, Fishing), Traditional Costumes and Carpets, Peasant Installations, Folk Masks, Interior Objects; the History Museum of Moldavia, with the sections: Prehistory, Ancient History, Mediaeval History, Modern and Contemporary History; "Stefan Procopiu" Science and Technique Museum, with the sections: Sound Recording and Playback, Energetics, Mineralogy, Telecommunications.

Some of the museum exhibits are unique and the modern means of data storage and presentation, such as the CD support are a manner to make them known throughout the world.

Multimedia has opened new possibilities to the life of museums and exhibits and the above CD with sound, text and image information can be any time improved according to the new technologic standards.
