Museums and the Web 2002: Best of the Web
Recognizing achievement in heritage Web site design

Best On-line Exhibition or Activity Site

These sites excelled in presenting and interpreting museum collections and themes, providing a rich and meaningful virtual experience. They may have been a section of a larger museum Web or a collaborative project between institutions and/or individuals and communities associated with museums. Entirely virtual museums were eligible to participate in this category as were exhibitions of Web art and other "born digital" collections. Quality characteristics include:

  • Effective use of multiple media formats

  • Innovative ways of complimenting physical exhibitions or providing surrogates for physical experiences in on-line only exhibitions

  • New ways of representing museum processes and structures

  • Imaginative audience participation and engagement of different categories of 'visitors'
