Welcome to The Online Museum.

The Online Museum is a virtual museum which anyone can add items to. To get involved all you need to do is register a free account. Then you are free to add items to the site. If you just want to explore the online collection then the best place to start is The Museum. Here you will find a wide range of art and history online.

The Online Museum also encourages everyone to participate with their thoughts and opinions on museums and heritage. If you have information on an item in our collection then tell us by adding a comment. You can also join and participate in discussion groups about a range of issues concerning heritage, history and museums. If you want to discuss something but can't find an appropriate group, then you can create a new group.

The Online Museum also provides expert information and opinion on subjects like online history and virtual museums, as well as a range of other interesting issues. These are all contained in our blogs section. From time to time there will even be guest blog posts to provide an alternative view on the subjects that matter.
