Abstract For several years now the concept of virtual museum has had an important role among the approaches being used for the diffusion of cultural information, as it offers an important extension to the traditional museum. In this paper, the author briefly discusses the concepts of the applications of virtual museums, by studying the transformation of a real museum into a virtual museum. The two new concepts of “the museum of museums” and that of “the imaginary museum” are also introduced. We define the portal functions and the virtual functions of a real museum, and then the functions of the “museum of museums” and of the “imaginary museum”. We also briefly summarize the technical Internet context implied in the realization of a virtual museum and its main operating principles.
